Nokori Folding Chair

View all 6 Photos

From Portland’s Tanner Goods, the Nokori Folding Chair is as elegant as it is functional, an embodiment of “good design.” Upon a sturdy frame of hand-rubbed mahogany wood hangs a beautiful and ergonomic hammock-like seat and back support made from heavy natural tooling leather, a choice of materials that will make the piece improve with age. Drawn from design aesthetics that began to emerge in the mid-twentieth century, the chair’s form follows its function; each aspect is so well-considered that one may forget it was designed at all. Each hand-crafted and hand-finished chair can conveniently fold flat, although it’s hard to imagine ever wanting to take this off display. Available here in either “new” or “aged.”

While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
