Hiroshima table, 2008

Hiroshima table by Naoto Fukasawa for Maruni.

The “Hiroshima” series was released in 2008. Designed by Naoto Fukasawa, the aim was to create furniture that combines robustness with designs that will remain fresh and vital.

The “Hiroshima” series, in particular, reflects the Japanese aesthetic as applied to wood and the skills that make it possible for this aesthetic to be brought to life in everyday contexts. Products in this series, therefore, have a natural wood finish with almost no paint or varnish.

Chairs and tables with simple, subtle structures that highlight the natural wood used, and which have no restrictions placed on them regarding places in which they are used ─ it is envisaged that they are used everywhere. One may choose either beech, walnut or oak. The gentle curve from the back along the arm is very appealing. The roomy seat can be used not only as a dining chair but as a lounge chair too. The tapering of the sides of the arms, the seat of the chair and the table accentuate the beauty of the light shining on their surfaces.

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.
