This collection of wooden furniture by Japanese designer Jin Kuramoto is built using traditional techniques derived from shipbuilding.

Pieces in Jin Kuramoto’s Nadia range for his new brand Matsuso T are constructed using a particular interlocking technique known as kumiki.

“The heritage of many of the woodworking techniques used by Japanese carpenters originates from Japanese shipwrights,” said Jin Kuramoto.

Curved sections of wood form grids for the chair backs, which flow into supports for the thinly padded seats. The chairs come in natural wood or bright red.

Coat stands are created using three poles with branch-like offshoots at the top that fix onto each other to make the structure sturdy. These are available in a set of light colours.
