brand:HOSHINAdesign: Motomi Kawakami
Luca 12 taps into the full charm and potential of wood to exude a dynamic presence, particularly through the delightfully elegant look created by weaving together separate bands of wood.
A new rhythm was added to the design in 2012 to further enrich the chair’s modern air.
