In Japan in the 1950s at the time of release, chairs and tables began to spread in ordinary households, and life in chairs was a longing.
Molded plywood, an innovative woodworking technology, was quickly incorporated into furniture by Tendo Woodworking, making it possible to make large amounts of furniture that is light, durable, and has high design that draws a free curve.
The background of the birth of the butterfly stool was the encounter of a new Japanese style of living and manufacturing technology.
We will continue to deliver the butterfly stool that we have made with every effort to make every effort.
