Product Description

DESIGN: NIELS BENDTSEN
BENSEN, CANADA
Torii is a simple yet sophisticated wood chair. Its comfort and sturdiness make it suitable for residential and commercial use. Torii is the Japanese name for the characteristic wood entrance arches to Shinto shrines in Japan and means bird perch. This motif perfectly describes the chairs distinct proportions and traditional joinery, and the sense of harmony and calm inherent in design that is beautifully resolved.

Torii is constructed using traditional exposed mortise-and-tenon joinery for the legs which is strong and expresses the honest intent of the design. The arched back rest is cleverly joined to each back leg using two long steel dowels and epoxy glue. This ensures this critical joint will not fail or crack, while keeping the material thin and light. The finish is an advanced low build water-based polyurethane that gives the wood a natural open-grain appearance, which is smooth to the touch and durable. A solid aluminum foot rail protects the wood frame.

Torii has passed the European EN 15373, Level 2 test for commercial seating. The test simulates a 250 lbs person sitting down 100,000 times plus other strength and durability tests.
