椅子のコンセプトとしてウィンザーチェアを選んだ理由のひとつは、その造形が椅子のアイコンのように覚えやすく、わかりやすいフォルムだということ。それは使う人の記憶に残りやすく、飽きがこない。
VILLAGEシリーズはウィンザーチェア構造をベースに、現代の木工技術で精度を高め、部材を最小限にすることで、快適でコストパフォーマンスの高い椅子になっている。座面裏の脚の収まりや、スポークの軋み、座面の反りなど、従来のウィンザーチェアの問題点を構造的に改善している。
[Good Design Award 2013]

The Village chair is inspired by the iconic Windsor Chair. It uses modern woodworking techniques to reduce the amount of material, and to meet the high cost performance, expected in the modern lifestyles of today. The VILLAGE chair tries to improve upon many challenges of the old windsor chair, such as the visible joints of the legs, the inconsistency of the spokes, and for the angle of the seat. Achieving these goals has resulted in a sturdier chair for a long-time use. The efficient construction and the simple joints also helped raising the productivity and lower the production cost of the chair.
