Ariake Collection by Legnatec and Hirata Chair

Ariake Collection is a series of minimal furniture created by a joint venture between Legnatec and Hirata Chair, two factories from the furniture-producing town of Morodomi in Saga prefecture, Japan. Ariake means “morning moon” or “daybreak” in Japanese, and symbolizes a new chapter for Legnatec and Hirata Chair, two leading companies in a twon consisting of more than thirty furniture factories.

Consisting of tables, storage, and seating made from white oak, sumi dyed ash, indigo dyed ash, hinoki, and burnt cedar, Ariake Collection is made using a combination of advanced CNC machines and detailed craftsmanship. The new brand brings together designers from different countries with a common respect for Japanese culture and woodworking.

The roster currently includes Anderssen & Voll of Norway, Keiji Ashizawa of Japan, Staffan Holm of Sweden, and Gabriel Tan of Singapore. They have designed an extensive 18-piece furniture collection during a one-week workshop in Morodomi.
