I have loved Zaishu stools ever since I first spotted them way back in 2004. Simple slot together creations made from plantation timber, it seemed no two were the same, as Zaishu collaborated with a range of artists and fellow designers such as Julie Patterson from Cloth, David Bromley, Nicola Cerini and Kat McLeod. Although I loved them, I never nabbed one and always wished I had, particularly as it seemed Zaishu had vanished into obscurity. However, the good news is they're back and lucky Melbournites can checkout the new launch range at The Big Design Market this weekend. I wish I was going!
I had this picture from the Zaishu brochure above my desk for years. I'd glance at it longingly and covet the wire old wire chair too.
Thanks for coming back Zaishu, you've been missed.
