Amaranth Chair

While  Japanese food has been registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage and thus attracts attention more and more, it is the current situation of Japanese food that negative elements such as food loss and/or additives used excessively appear and disappear.

With an inspiration from such Japanese food, we designed a Amaranth chair. Amaranth chair uses leather upholstery dyed with a coloring agent called Amaranth that is used in many foods in Japan despite the fact that it is prohibited to use due to its carcinogenicity in the United States.


I think I would like to sit in this chair and look back over the Japanese food.
