Kawara Chair

This ingenious and simple design by Tsuyoshi Hayashi repurposes discarded Japanese roof tiles. The resulting chairs are both innately Japanese and the addition of colors is amazing.

“Japanese roof tiles are fired at 1200 degrees celsius, much higher than the 800 degree temperature of European tiles, meaning that they can hold the weight of a person up to 250 lbs.”
