Moving Tatamis by José Lévy for Daiken

Dear Shaded Viewers,

French creator and designer Jose Levy introduced the first ever furniture collection to be produced in traditional tatami in collaboration with the Japanese manufacturer Daiken. Daiken is a leading home building materials company in Japan. A complete range of furniture includes sofa, armchair, bench seats, stools, side tables, a storage cabinet and shelving. The tatami used for the collection is woven from Japaese traditional paper wa-shi and not straw to provide better resistance. The collection is available at JOYCE Gallery 168 rue de Valois, 75001, Paris
