“In Japanese, ‘za’ means a safe meeting place and, long ago, monasteries were such places. Inspired by this ancient tradition of hospitality, Shin and Tomoko Azumi have created an elegant seating system, ideal for waiting areas, museums and shops. Each single element, with a slightly shaped sinuous profile, can be endlessly multiplied. With alternating straight and curved elements, it creates an amazing world of shapes. All the elements feature a characteristic metal band. This meeting is marked by the history of the men of yesterday and of today.”- text:
