In Japan, since ancient times, traditional architecture have had diverse types of partitions – “shikiri” in Japanese. Such as folding screens, sliding doors, and reed blinds
These partitions can block dazzling sunlight or the view from the outside but at the same time allow people inside to be aware of light, wind, or sound from outside the partition.
They are indispensable items in Japanese houses, where people highly value the changes in the natural world outside. NychairX Shikiri is inspired by the concept of a shikiri partition and suggests a lifestyle with a closer connection to nature.
It has been sold in various countries for over 40 years since it was first created by Japanese designer Takeshi Nii.
The designer Takeshi Nii was one of the creators of the NychairX. He was the third generation owner of a company manufacturing Kendo equipment in Tokushima Prefecture. He aimed to “make a chair like the curry rice everybody loves”. That is to say, a chair that would be reasonably priced, comfortable to sit on, and useful.
