Furniture Design Row Bench by Kazunaga Sakashita The theme of this design is a fusion of Japanese material and other material. Furniture combined with rush (tatami) that has been used in Japanese daily life through the ages and metal is little seen because mostly wood has been chosen for it. The combination of tatami and wood is the very “Japanese (Zen)” style in a global sense, however, it may be said that it has limited coordination. On the other hand, this bench is simply unique but also has universality. It takes on modern and minimal characters by combining with aluminum, and matches not only for Japanese but any taste of spaces.
