"Karimoku New Standard's know-how in woodworking combines skilled craftsmen with cutting edge technology," the studio told Dezeen. "They have achieved the slim armrest using very precise joinery work, milling and sanding, and have given it a great finish that ages well. After all, it's a part that you're always touching or rubbing against when you're sitting on an armchair."
The Castor references ergonomics of chairs found in traditional Swiss cafes, including the low seat with a wide backrest.
The chair joins a collection that comprises a bench, a shelf, stackable stools and seats, as well as dining tables. It is available in natural oak, grey, black and green.
The piece will be on show as part of Karimoku New Standard's exhibition during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
