“After calling the small armchair ten (sky in japanese), I thought it might be natural to name the small table ci, which designates the surface of the earth. The bond between ten and ci, sky and earth, was instinctive.” Naoto Fukasawa
The armchair ten, which is cozy and comfortable, matches the small chair ci, creating a lounge area that harmoniously blends into all interiors, from classical to metropolitan.
