Description/

Akiko Kuwahata, who lives and works in Denmark, designs sculptural and functional works which seem to resume the qualities of the two great design nations, Japan and Denmark, with their beautiful combination of sensual material, exquisite craftsmanship and elegant aerodynamic forms. Over the years, she has continuously worked to refine techniques and design of wooden objects, to explore and use the potential and abilities of natural wood. Most often, they are objects with a utilitarian value beside their obvious clean and utterly fluid design. In a product from Akiko one find little clever details, most often understated – such as the use of thinly cut wooden strips used for sewing. Such details can be found in ‘Stitch Stool and Table’ (2009) where quality is key and her products have an unequalled level of finish and are irresistible to touch.

Materials: Maple, wax string.
