Japanese Tea Ceremony Chair

tea04

Based on the design of a featherlight bamboo whisk used in Japanese tea ceremonies (to whisk the green tea powder) – artist Hiroki Takada created a chair made of of the same material.

This is the artist’s mother sitting in the chair.

While beautiful, I’d be afraid of leaning back on it too hard and snapping the thin reeds! See the rest of the photos on Design Boom.
