Machiya Bench & Stool / Sika-Design

There is a traditional Japanese house style called “Machiya” which is built by connecting small houses next to each other. I thought that this style which was created to use a small space efficiently and functionally, It might work well if we replaced it with furniture.This bench and stool were designed with the idea that using it as a combination set or as a single unit will give a good calm atmosphere to the space.The seating surface is composed of a fine line work that is regularly aligned and crosses at right angles, creating a comfortable sitting experience.The space under the seat where you put your luggage, is reflecting the wisdom of the Machiya style to use space efficiently.
