Tsubomi Chair by Leif Designpark
The Tsubomi Chair is a lounge chair sits low on the ground, close to the earth, spreading like the very moss it represents. Designed and manufactured by Leif.designpark, the Tsubomi “was born from an image of a bright future,” which may serve to explain its interesting chartreuse color. This color mimics nature, perhaps a strange moss. Its elemental hue is no mistake: Leif compares the Tsubomi to a flower growing in KuKunochi’s Forest, the Shinto god of trees. Root-like and branch-like, the lounge chair’s backrest extends towards the sky in organic growths—making the user of the Tsubomi a metaphorical bud.
