DESCRIPTION

Here's a chair that will animate your decor, in every sense of the word. Homerun takes its waggish look from its cartoonish features, redrawn to stylish effect. There's more than a hint of the playground in the legs that mimic a baseball bat, but they're exceptionally sturdy to boot. The graphic color choices are right out of a comic strip. And the generous size of the seat and backrest allow plenty of room to get comfortable. Brussels-based Sylvain Willenz has all the design bases loaded and his Homerun hits it out of the park!

ABOUT THE BRAND: KARIMOKU NEW STANDARD

KARIMOKU NEW STANDARD

A traditional Japanese maker of wood furniture for 70-odd years, Karimoku turned an exciting new page when it relaunched in 2009 with an international roster of contributing designers as Karimoku New Standard. The reboot was twofold—to create modern pieces using its heritage of Japanese craftsmanship techniques and to revitalize native forests by targeting significantly undervalued hardwoods. That precious resource, from low-diameter chestnut, maple and oak trees, had previously ended up mostly as wood chips for paper pulp.

Meanwhile, the design world was gobsmacked by the company’s splendidly functional, often joyously colored furnishings emanating from its collaborating partners. From European, Scandinavian and Japanese creative talents, they include Swedish studio TAF, the Swiss team Big-Game and cult Dutch design duo Scholten & Baijings. The revived Karimoku concept, termed “high-tech and high-touch” by brand creative director David Glaettli, melds the latest technology with unstinting hand-finishing for a truly collectable array of refreshingly unique standouts.
