Airy, with constructive details linked to Japanese tradition, the Torii modular seats play with round-edged volumes, thin profiles and the apparent formal simplicity of an extremely detailed design.
The metal structure of the legs of the seats and tables is Nendo’s nod to the image of the “torii”, the entrance gate to Shinto shrines in Japan.
With an interlocking game, the horizontal elements are laid on the vertical supports, ensuring a sophisticated visual lightness that accommodates the padded volume, characterized by couture craftsmanship.
The Small armchair is also available in the Torii Nest version with braided leather backrest and a pattern inspired by Vienna straw, inserted in an ash wood frame that sits on a base in the same material.
The Torii family includes sofas – with high or low backrest and linear shape, rounded at the arms – inclined sofas with a combination of two different depths, armchairs and lounge and dining little armchairs, ottomans, coffee tables, and a slender, oval-shaped console table, ideal for placing anywhere in the living area.
The varied range of products makes it possible to design a flexible layout, in which the individual elements can also be combined to create a strong visual unity. The metal frame found in the components of the Torii family evokes the image of the “Senbon Torii, the wooden colonnade that forms a gallery made up of 1,000 vermilion torii gates”, as Nendo reminds us.
