BENSEN Torii Chair with Upholstered Seat
Torii is a simple yet subtly sophisticated wood chair, defined by its closely spaced back legs, broad seat, and small arched backrest. Its minimal appearance and simple construction hide a surprising amount of comfort and sturdiness. Torii is the Japanese name for the characteristic wood entrance arches to Shinto shrines in Japan, and translates directly into English as "bird perch". This motif perfectly describes the chairs distinct proportions and traditional joinery. The rails of the chairs under-structure are connected using concealed wood dowels, and the seat is secured with guiding dowels and specialized metal fittings. The arched back rest is cleverly joined to each back leg with two long steel dowels and epoxy glue. This ensures this critical joint will not fail or crack, while allowing to keep the material thin and light.
The Bensen Torii Chair is available in a plethora of upholstery options which may affect final pricing. Mod Livin' pays standard (threshold) shipping. Bensen lead times average 8-10 weeks. Made to order in Vancouver, BC.
