The YC1 Chair might have a basic silhouette, yet it is far from underwhelming. Instead, the use of a conventional frame simply allows the more unique features to stand out all the more. Namely, the backrest. The YC1 Chair is finished with "simple white rope is threaded through holes in the chair and run through a leather, tube-like detail which helps to cradle the back while creating a beautiful and unexpected seat back," writes Design Milk.

Designed by Tokyo-based Mikiya Kobayashi for Takumi Kohgei, the YC1 Chair is part of the larger Yamanami collection. It brings a subtle serenity to the space its placed in, which is only natural considering people will look to it for relaxation.
