SAND is a minimal plywood chair created by Tokyo-based practice Koichi Futatsumata Studio.

Its name "SAND" is derived from the composition of solid wood legs sandwiched between multiple molded plywood parts. With a backless type that does not have a back plate, you can sit from either a front or back seat. Combining together multiple parts, it is possible to develop various things, such as an armchair with a back and a bench with an attached side table.

A chair designed as part of Tendo Mokko’s 80th anniversary project ” TENDO JAPANESE MODERN / 80 PROJECT “.
