The Japanese designer Tatsuo Kuroda has created a chair for Normann Copenhagen which unites classic materials with modern aesthetics. The Knot chair has a clean and simple expression, reminiscent of classic 1950s furniture.

The overall impression is determined by its details, such as the dominant jointing points in natural paper cord, which also provide optimal sitting comfort. The structural components of the Knot chair are tied together with paper cord, which provide both support and a stylish visual expression; and, despite his Japanese background, Tatsuo has been inspired by traditional Scandinavian design.

Tatsuo Kuroda explains: “My thoughts behind Knot was to create a chair which is a reinterpretation of itself – a chair that is both classic and modern at the same time. I am inspired by Danish design classics in which function and aesthetics come together.”

The Knot chair has all of the characteristics we expect of a chair, but with a modern Scandinavian look characterised by detailed. The result is comfort for both body and eye.
