The SANAA Armless Chair for Americans boasts a slight tweak for larger Western individuals. The classic Japanese design, which was just last year made smaller for children in a limited run, sports the exact same design except for a subtle size change in width. Nevertheless, that change speaks volumes between the two different cultures.

Manufactured by Maruni, the SANAA Armless Chair for Americans will have the same rabbit ear-like backrest, which was designed specifically to relieve tension from the spine and not for any other adorable purposes. According to Fast Co Design, "Both original and wide sizes were exhibited last spring at the Canadian Center for Architecture, as part of an exhibit called Imperfect Health, examining medicine and illness through design."
