Inspired by the beauty and shapes of nature, Sadogawa uses the inherent characteristics of his materials to inform a minimalist design. With the Wing Series, he employs curved, flowing lines and shadows to create a sculptural look and feeling of mass. There are no straight lines here, and even the triangular elements— which represent the vitality of nature—are rounded.
A symbolic item of this series, the wing arm chair conjures the image of a graceful bird. The minimalist design aids in the chair's overall comfort, with subtle curves that fit perfectly to the shape of the body. The backrest, formed using highly advanced equipment technology, creates the compound curvatures rarely available. The solid wood is routed out by a series of successive etchings to carve out the multiple dimensional curves from a single block of wood.
Available in a number of finishes the wing series chairs feature sophisticated yet subtle finger joints, an expressed detail of beauty and strength.

Kiyoshi Sadogawa designs for life - not just in terms of length (60 years), but also in the way he creates. His designs are inspired by his perception of people's lifestyles - he designs furniture to fit into these lifestyles in a seamless and effective manner. While he works closely with nature, he is ultimately focused on creating comfort, explaining his interest in ergonomics in his university years.
