In Japanese, the word Haiku defines the particular composition of a type of verse, one that is touching in its spontaneity, apparent simplicity, and freedom from rhetoric and artifice.

This approach is linked in some ways to the design concept which underlies the family of Haiku seating elements: a labor of painstaking detail that progresses by subtraction to arrive at the essence of the design but that calls for masterful execution and an almost obsessive attention to every constructive detail.

Cowhide was the natural choice in which to make this product ‒ an extremely fascinating material, flexible but also durable ‒ used to tailor the understated upholstery for the seat, backrest and armrests and fits the underlying metal structure like a glove, available in a number of elegant finishes.
