Outline

Basso is a familiar type seating for Japanese accustomed to a tatami lifestyle, allowing anyone to experience the best points of floor-oriented life. The 22 centimeter seat height lets one experience a low seated feeling while the unique structure gives superb seated stability along with making it easy to come to a standing position. Simple styling and fine wood texture allow enjoying a pleasant time relaxing with no 'rush-rush' feeling even if Basso is placed in the living room.
