Ariake is a collaboration between two Japanese furniture companies, Legnatec and Hirata Chair. The brand’s collection consists of furniture drawing from Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics, designed by well-known international designers. Named after the Ariake sea, a bay surrounded by different prefectures on the Kyushyu island, the name Ariake (Japanese for ”daybreak”) symbolises a new beginning for the two companies.
A central part of Ariake’s ideology is bringing people, cultures and ideas together. To create a relationship between the designers and the craftsmen involved in the production, Ariake invited all parties to attend an intensive workshop during which the products would be developed in a collaborative manner, helping and guiding each other along the way. The furniture is produced in Japan partially by hand using traditional Japanese handcraft techniques.
