ZEN STONE

New collection designed by Apiwat Chitapanya for Masaya, a Thai brand of brass furniture

 

Zen Stone Collection was inspired by stones in Zen stone garden where stones  are  considered as the soul of the garden.  With  horizontal  and flat  shape  representing  water  and  mind,  Shintai  Stones  have   been selected  for  designing  this  Collection  to  show  the  balance  of  the blending between life and nature that creates harmony and relaxation.

 

Zen  Stone  Collection  consists  of  sofa  set  and  screen made of brass using lost-wax casting method.

 

The sofa set was designed using three different size stones, composing of a side-table topped with round shaped teak and two armchairs.  The sofa set was composed of two black stones in different sizes put next to each  other  and  topped  with  stone  shaped padding. This represents concentration and calm in creating the art of stone-stacking.

 

The gold backrest was designed using simple lines to enable see-through and create harmony with background environment. To facilitate daily usage, the sofa set came with round grass tray made of teak at the right seat.

 

There are two sizes of screen. Screens were simple and stable in design to  represent  the  relation between nature - the shape of the stone and movement of water, using horizontal pattern to create a feeling of peace and  stillness  as  well as perspective. Furthermore, there is some space left for harmonious decoration with flowerpots.
