The JAKU seating and table family is characterized by a construction that is easily readable; indeed, the various structural elements resolve into geometric volumes with triangular or rectangular sections simply linked to each other. The heart of the project is the supporting structure consisting of a central beam supported by two trestles functioning as legs. Extreme construction and visual simplification contrast with an extremely sophisticated treatment of the chair in a special version: a sort of 3D texture that embellishes the flat surface of the backrest, an intervention of high-quality craftsmanship that showcases the artistic abilities of the artisans from Chacas in Peru.
