The ARC chair was designed based on influences from various cultures. It marries European elegance and Japanese sophistication. The main structure that looks like a bow creates a bold and unique impression. It consists of minimal parts, realizing a lightweight and rigid chair constructed with high-quality craftsmanship. The ARC chair helps to create beautiful spaces in various scenes, such as residences and lounges. USCITA is a new brand. The impetus for the project came when the ARC chair was entered for the IFDA2017 international furniture design competition, and was awarded as finalist's prize.
