Contemporary interpretation of rattan


The new collection of furniture for the home and semi-outdoors by Yamakawa is made from the world’s best rattan, sourced from the tropical jungles of Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Sumatra.

The pieces, fashioned by hand according to age-old Japanese techniques, lack a support structure made from other materials, giving them a lightweight appearance and a special charm.

The collection, which was on view in Milan’s Rossana Orlandi Gallery during the Milano Design Week, includes the Sloop cradle and he Flan stools by Studio Irvine, Ami tables by Jun Yasumoto, the Nassa screens by the young Madrid designer Marta Ayala Herrera, and Sobachoco, a project by the Japanese designer Hisanobu Tsujimura.
