maki yamamoto @ five finger furnishings
We've just completed our first collaboration, the Gendo Collection, with couture-trained fabric artist and designer Maki Yamamoto--and the pieces are beautiful. The collection includes a sofa, chair, bench and vanity-sized mini-bench and was launched at the ICFF NY in May 2016. It's currently available at 1stDibs.
Gendo Collection--meaning “movement” in Japanese--is a collage of handmade and collectible textiles, including couture’s pleats, flowers and bows; painterly color and hand-sewn lines. Textiles are created and combined to project texture, shape and movement—not just stretched tight to cover a surface.
Each piece is custom for the room it adorns, and reveals the drama and artistry that is possible in hand-made, one-of-a-kind seating.
