Feather light, super strong and 100 percent biological. Those have been the objectives for a long research and development project by one of Japan’s most accomplished young designers, Jin Kuramoto, and Offecct. The result, Jin, is a chair with the potential to bring about radical change in the way we make furniture.
Jin Kuramoto’s Wind room divider is an innovative concept for controlling acoustics in public spaces and meeting venues, a market which Offecct has pioneered. The dividers improve the acoustic qualities of an environment, while at the same time adding interesting dimensions to the room.
Following the instant success of our Wind room dividers, Jin Kuramoto has designed a new side table with his same trademark irregular, organic shapes. The table was commissioned exclusively for the new Zander K hotel in Bergen, Norway, with interiors by architects Claesson Koivisto Rune. The table comes in two heights, manufactured in a monochrome, stone-resembling material.
