A Stockholm design week straggler: these pretty pastel chairs by Yuki Yoshikawa, who hand-paints the wood grain with gouache, files down the paint, then repaints them again until they have this muted, marbled effect.
“I wished to develop one thing that had by no means been available prior to,” explained Yoshikawa. “Not in type, but in the top quality of supplies used. I thought superbly embellishing wooden resourceswould be intriguing as a new experiment.”
The green, red and blue colors have been picked to represent springleaves, autumn leaves and the sky.
