Primitive Japanese Bamboo Chair


A beautiful and unusual 1940s Japanese bamboo chair. Great peg and dowel, break-down, de-mountable construction, incredible design with simple, organic, geometric elements and cantilevered seat. Possibly intended as garden furniture, wonderfully weathered and worn, whitewashed bamboo likely from years living outdoors. Incredible, unusual scale and proportion. A fine example of the Japanese minimal, modernist aesthetic.
