Skandium is looking forward to hosting the UK launch of NARA, a furniture collection by multi award-winning Japanese designer Shin Azumi for Frederica, Denmark.
Frederica celebrates its Centenary in 2011 and to mark this special anniversary Frederica has chosen Shin Azumi to design a collection of furniture. The range reflects Danish crafts traditions while at the same time adding the flair of Japanese elegance. The collaboration with Frederica, who has a long tradition of working with accomplished designers, has resulted in a collection, which encompasses the ethos of both Japanese and Danish design, remaining sleek, simple and timeless.
The Nara furniture range was born out of a desire to create comfortable furniture from a simple wooden structure. The range is named after Japan's ancient capital Nara and seeks much of its inspiration from its free-roaming, sacred deer for which it is famous.
Nara comprises dining chairs with and without upholstered seats, a dining table and a coat stand.
