Functional designs: Fukasawa and Morrison launches for Maruni

(Maruni collection)

Hiroshima-based Japanese brand Maruni launched a collection designed by Jasper Morrison and Naoto Fukasawa. The collection expands upon Fukasawa’s “Hiroshima” chair with a bar stool and stackable armchair, as well as two new products from Morrison with the “T” chair and “O” stool.

Morrison’s products are made with lacquered maple and available in three heights, accented with a painted steel support in black, green or red. This added feature is said to lend a touch of whimsy to Morrison’s functional design. Meanwhile, Fukasawa’s Hiroshima barstool adds flexibility in room configurations and space management.
