February 11, 2020: The ‘Maki’ lounge series by Offecct

Jin kuramoto has designed the Maki chair for swedish furniture company OFFECCT, with a strong and iconic shape that can be combined in different formations. presented during the stockholm furniture fair 2020, the chair features an unconventional structure with an open hollow space in the back that takes its cues from the famous Japanese maki rolls. ‘after working with OFFECCT for a few years now, I realize that they have a very good technique for upholstery,’ explains the Japanese designer to Designboom Magazine. ‘the production of this chair was a rather big challenge, especially because of the inside of the tube-like back, since it is quite hard to fix the fabric there.’
