Lightwood armchair cushion, 2013

Lightwood armchair cushioned by Jasper Morrison for Maruni.

“Like many previous chair projects I have designed, the Lightwood Chair is about structure, making use of the unbeatable craftsmanship of Maruni’s wood technology to achieve a light wooden structure. This can be completed with a variety of different solutions for the seat, starting with the lightest - a white mesh - which leaves the structure partially visible, then a woven webbing which reminds us of shaker furniture (except that it’s a synthetic webbing which makes an interesting contrast with the wood), and then the more traditional upholstered seat in fabric or leather, which provide extra comfort and can be removed for cleaning. It’s a contract chair which is equally suited to the home.”

Founded in 1928, Maruni developed a technique of bentwood working that was considered extremely difficult at the time.

Founded in 1928, Maruni developed a technique of bentwood working that was considered extremely difficult at the time.

The name of the company was changed to Maruni Wood Industry, Inc. in 1933, after which the company set about achieving the industrial application of crafts skills in distinction to traditional Japanese methods of furniture production, which had remained until then firmly rooted in the field of the handicrafts.
