B-Side: Futton

We have the bad habit of looking to the back side of objects. We may discover complete different languages, often they tell more about the product that the a-side, sometimes they happen to be even more interesting; no matter what we find is always worth the time.

The back side of the Futton lounge chair designed by Tomita Kazuhiko for Moroso claims an extreme attention to details; the adjusting string has miniature objects such as tea pots and japanese styled cats hanging, for a very oriental touch.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
