Welcome to the very last Maison Monday, as well as the very last new design post of 2011. From here on out HC2 will be counting down our favourite designs of the year. Thankfully, we’ve got a great in-home feature to end on a high note.
‘Each Other’ is a chair conceived by Japanese design student Takahito Araki studying at Tokyo Metropo Itan University under the direction of professor Keisuke Fujiwara. The seating object is composed of two almost identical parts which cannot be used individually. However, when the components are slid into one another and engaged, together they become a fully functioning chair. Conveniently, the chair’s width can be altered, offering four different seating widths.
each piece is made from birch plywood.
