The Back Floating Chair seems to offer the sitter a sturdy seat on which to place his weight; however, can the same be said about the rear support? Kei Harada has, of course, constructed the piece of furniture with sufficient strength, even though it looks like the backrest is barely attached.
The U-shaped composition of the base of the object actually conceals a pair of thin braces. These hold the rear panel firmly in place in a way that's visually undetectable from most perspectives. It appears as though the KIT furnishing is made up of just four flat rectangular planes the merge in some places and hover adjacent in others. The minimalist whitewash of the Back Floating Chair reinforces the structure's illusion.
