The cultural anthropologist Gordon Huse said that there are two customs characterized in our lives – sitting on a chair, or sitting on the ground. For centuries, the Japanese have sat on the ground (the ‘za-seat’). The mixture of the meditated style of yoga from India and the religious training from China influenced this custom. After Dogen brought Soto Zen to Japan, the tatami mat became associated with the traditional tea ceremony, and has always been used throughout Japan for this custom. If you like, think of tatami as a philosophy of sitting.

And the Tatami Flight Chair and Bench Sofa are a modern interpretation of this philosophy. The frame – available in both light or dark bamboo – has tatami as the seating base and kimono fabric as its backing. The tatami base concentrates one’s attention on thought, and allows for peace of mind in meditation. And no extended periods of sitting on the ground are required!

    i love this look. it looks so serene and quiet. Great furniture for thinking calmly without all the wild colors. I would read on the bench anyday and it looks comfortable as well.
