Konoha, "tree leaves"


From the algorithm of the double helix arises a unique form of Nature. Toyo Ito has been inspired by this particular shape to design furniture that facilitates connection among people and that allows free use of spaces. The result is a bench with a unique silhouette, similar to the fragments of a plant, with which we can compose a full leaf.

By combining the pieces of the series in different ways, we alter the rhythms. By changing the position or orientation of the benches, we can modify the context and adapt to the dimensions of any space. Toyo Ito uses natural materials: wool, wood and steel to enhance the organic component of the design. Konoha is a Japanese word that means “tree leaves”.
