BRAND : MASAYA
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.
