About

French creator and designer José Lévy introduces the first ever furniture collection to be produced in traditional tatami with the Japanese manufacturer Daiken, a leading home building materials company in Japan. There is a complete range of furniture: Sofa, armchair, bench seats, stools, side tables, a storage cabinet and shelving, launching this material typically found on the ground into a state of weightlessness. A change of function was requested by Daiken in order to consider this material in a new light and move away from its traditional use. Daiken has a mission to lead the harmonization between human, space and environment for the better quality of life of customers.  It is always found in at least one room in each Japanese house: the infamous washitsu (traditional Japanese room). The tatami used for the collection is woven from Japanese traditional paper wa-shiand not straw to provide better resistance.
