Seating & Comfort Furniture

The cocoda chair is characterised by its organic looking shape that appeals to the senses and also offers a high degree of comfort. A particularly noticeable feature are the curved armrests. These are hand-carved out of solid wood using special Japanese tools as this type of complex form is not achievable through machine bending. This gives each chair a unique character but still allows for mass production. We thought that a simple chair with only the necessary functions is the most comfortable and most beautiful. This is a very Japanese way of thinking. After many improvements, we arrived at this simple form. Not only is it comfortable to sit on, but we have made it so that you can enjoy the natural feel of the wood, which makes it more relaxing to sit on. The beautiful organic form of this product attracts users to touch it. Each piece is hand-carved out of solid wood using Japanese hand tools. The form of the chair has been designed for functional beauty, so it not only looks beautiful, but can be used in a variety of sitting positions. The human body is made up of many curves, this chair has many curves as a result of the pursuit of comfort. It is the best seating experience no matter how you sit. In today's increasingly mechanized world, most furniture is made by automated machines. However, complex cubic curves that fit the human body best cannot be made by machine. We believe that the fact that we can mass produce this chair, which are made by hand with the quality of a one-of-a-kind piece, is a new value that cannot be found anywhere else.
