Barcelona Chair in Shiite design affordable for everyone ...

The Barcelona chair is a classic of modern furniture design of the twentieth century by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. This created the chair next to the ottoman and matching side table for the German pavilion at the Barcelona International Exposition of 1929. The chairs were so magnificent that were used as thrones for the kings of Spain when he visited the Barcelona Pavilion.

The harmonious proportions and elegant way to Barcelona chair became almost a sculptural object worthy of gallery exhibition. Its shape is based on curulis seals, a type of chair used by Roman magistrates.

The design was developed in the framework of reconstruction after the First World War.The 10 years prior to the International Exhibition of Barcelona were very hectic for European governments: problems of education, social instability, mass migration, new boundaries, disappearance of monarchies, etc. A time in which nations tried, after the devastation, return to stability and vigorous display to the world.

Therefore, Mies van der Rohe had a great responsibility to produce an exhibition pavilion for the Barcelona to announce the revival of German culture and display their successes.

At that time, beyond the conflicts, designers, industrialists, architects and artists were inspired and were able to exploit new technologies and new materials developed during the First World War. In this sense, van der Rohe anticipated the use of stainless steel in the domestic furniture.

Today this classic of furniture design is still very popular, and both the chair as the ottoman and matching side table are still manufactured under the license purchased by Knoll Mies in 1953. In Shiite we present an avant-garde design chair characteristc similar to the original and affordable for all pockets. Because the design does not have to be only available for a few.

Traditional Futon Beds (Pt 3/3)

By: Carl Walker

The Western Transformation:

The futon become popular in the United until after World War II. In the 1960s, handmade cotton pads were used by hippies, students and health enthusiasts as alternatives for conventional beds. The first significant transformation, about a decade later, was the introduction of convertible frames which turned the futon into a bed-cum-couch furniture.

By the 1980s, the popularity of the futon had reached its peak in the United States and other western countries, and people started buying it in large quantities. The transformation continued with the introduction of components such as innersprings, pocket springs, coil, foam and polyester mattresses, as well as electric frames with massagers. The futon had become considerably westernized towards the end of the decade that it became almost hard to recognize a Western-style futon as a futon.

The popularity of the futon also spread to the country of its origin, and top Japanese futon manufacturer, Maruhachi Mawata, started manufacturing futons resembling the western style in 1997. Older generation of Japanese still very much use the traditional futon but younger people prefer the comfort, style and added features of the western style. Incidentally by the year 2001, there was a 60 percent increase in the use of western style futons and beds in Japan.

Traditional Futon Beds (Pt 2/3)

By: Carl Walker

In Japan, there is a variety of futons available depending on the season. For example, futon may be made of feathers, which is light and comfortable during summers. Thick and heavy futons may otherwise be used in the summer season.

Futons are designed to be laid on Tatami - a traditional Japanese flooring created from individual woven straw mats of uniform size and shape, bordered by brocade or plain black cloth, and packed with straw. Styrofoam may also be used with the recent ones.

The traditional futon, when not in use, can be folded away and stored in a closet called oshiire, which has sliding doors and is usually divided into two shelves. The futon is generally stored on the upper shelf, and since Japanese homes are typically small in size, a room may be used for multiple purposes such as functioning both as a living and dining room. The futon quite comes in quite handy when considering this since it can be easily stored away.

Futon is Japanese traditional furniture, basically a mattress that makes up a bed which is still commonly used today. Futons first appeared as weed-made rags in ancient Japan. A traditional futon set usually costs under 10,000 yen (around$83) sold at specialty stores called futon-Ya in Japan and other department stores.

A traditional Japanese futon set generally consists of a mattress called a shikibuton wrapped in Shikifu or sheets, a comforter called Kakebuton covered with a kakebuton cover, blanket called mōfu, and a pillow called makura. The makura is usually filled with beans, buckwheat chaff, or plastic beads. The 4 to 5 cm thick futon itself is flat, having a fabric exterior stuffed with cotton and/or synthetic batting.
