Nordic Needlework

Australian Bushland

My Australian readers won't be surprised to see this brilliant design company on my blog. Just look at those patterns! Zaishu Studio make these stylish Japanese-inspired seat-tables from eco-sustainable native Australian Hoppie Pine. The name Zaishu is derived from the Japanese word 'zaisu' which refers to a seat without legs used in traditional homes.Their seat-table was inspired by the slot-together wooden beams found in Japanese Buddhist temples as well as the Japanese respect for natural materials and rationalization of forms.
Placing five panels of a Zaishu seat/table flat on the floor references the lines and curves of a traditional Japanese Kimono dress.

Sturdy but lightweight, artistic but functional, handpainted, handprinted and easy-to-assemble, these Zaishu seat-tables seem perfect. A suivre...
