New pieces by Ritzwell explore the capabilities of leather
Japanese furniture manufacturer, Ritzwell, debuted four new pieces at Dezeen showroom ― all incorporating sleek leather into minimalist, modern forms that transcend passing trends. As the brand stated, "Ritzwell's creations do not respond to the fashions of the moment; rather, they speak to a renewed and deep desire for objects that can speak to the eyes and to the heart, both today and in the future."
With multiple leather color options complemented by either walnut or oak wood, the four drops can work in any space ― which include a lounge chair, a stool, a bench and a desk. Combined they make the ultimate home workspace goals, complete with expert craftsmanship that'll have you feeling like you scored the boss's office. Scroll to check 'em out.
Designer Shinsaku Miyamoto took inspiration from traditional Japanese craftsmanship and artisanal philosophies to create a timeless piece aimed at defying trends. Thick strips of quality leather available in five color options are woven across a subtly curved wooden seat, supported by slim metal legs in one of seven colors. Expert craftsmanship is immediately obvious in the intricate yet minimal build.
Rivage Lounge Chair
Clean yet comfy, the Rivage Lounge Chair was built by Japanese studio Atelier D.Q. for the brand. A cushy leather seat accompanied by two gently sloped armrests are supported by a sleek steel frame ― a build inspired by the forms of Japan's traditional temples or shrines.
MO Bridge Small Desk & MO Bridge Stool
Meant to be partnered alongside each other, the two pieces were designed by Ritzwell's very own creative director since 2003, Shinsaku Miyamoto. Like the other releases, and two are designed with an intentional pared-back form that seeks to merge a contemporary aesthetic with the "fundamentals of Japanese philosophy". More detailed leather weaving reveals the worksmanship behind the build without overpowering the minimalist look.
