Tawaraya Ring

Tawaraya Ring is a domestic “boxing ring.” Masanori Umeda’s aim was to create “a space that is furniture at the same time,” a ring “for intellectual combat.” As a conversational metaphor, Tawaraya Ring sets the stage for Memphis’s battle to revolutionize design. A hybrid of East and West, Tawaraya Ring is based on the proportions of the tatami mat.

Wooden ring covered in decorative laminate, traditional Japanese tatami made of woven straw, metal and lacquered wood elements. Upholstered cushion covered in silk.
