Zaishu - seat/table/box/artwork


It seems that 'Zaishu' is Japanese for small seat. It also functions as a small table and storage box. Requires no tools or problematic fittings like nails, screws or adhesives. Made from plywood "ideally salvaged from construction sites", the seats simply slot slot together, in an operation that can be completed in as little as 11 seconds! Requiring no packaging, the seats are designed to take on a used patina, with he external artwork has been created a variety of designers and artists from Australia, Japan, Korea, and Italy. Designed by Matthew Butler, whose business, Blue Square, makes the claim: "Environmentally, we are a 'carbon neutral' company where we guarantee that a tree will be planted for each chair sold." ::Blue Square [by WM]
