Designed with a silhouette you’d expect from a fabric seating device, the Indigo Dyed Chairnby Jin Kuramoto is in fact purely made from bamboo strips. Combining techniques like weaving as well as bending, Kuramoto’s chair looks inviting, and also utilizes a technique alien to bamboo production. Indigo-dying!
A native of Taiwan, Jin used materials that were indigenous to him, combining two unlikely domains to form something that’s subtly unique. The resulting bamboo chair does look spectacular, but even showcases a different hue, thanks to the introduction of indigo to the production process. My arms can’t wait to rest on those armrests!
