Chair Tuesday: Tomoe Chair

This one's very new to me; I first saw it yesterday in a shop window as I was walking through Woolloomooloo waiting for the car to be serviced.
I find it wonderfully elegant.
The Japanese design is also quite evident in its form.  Not to mention the shaping detail where the leg meets the frame, which is really a thing of beauty on its own.  The contours of the timber pieces allow the oak grain to come out quite nicely too.  I do like wood grain when it's done so well.

I don't know much about who designed it or how old it is, all I can tell you is that it's by an Australian company called Temperature Design who have many lovely things on their website, so be sure to have a look.
