Daily Jun Yasumoto, 2021
With DAILY, Jun Yasumoto, together with Colos, tackles a classic industrial design theme: the wooden seat and backrest joined together and supported by a metal frame. The design idea was mainly to preserve the formal and technical simplicity of this traditional product, but to add a subtle refinement to achieve a result suitable for more sophisticated environments....
DAILY is a product that communicates confidence, thanks to the preservation of a shape that already exists in the collective imagination, and elegance, thanks to a design attentive to proportions, detail and comfort. DAILY is also practical, since it can be stacked in the two versions proposed, without or with armrests, thanks to the underseat cover that protects the wooden part in case of stacking. It is aimed at classic, contemporary, collective and domestic environments.
Japanese and French parents, and a life straddling Tokyo and Paris: Jun Yasumoto brings together two cultures that are worlds apart. Minimalism on one hand, romanticism on the other.
