TD23 is a minimalist chair created by China-based studio TOWERLAND. The TD23 chair, crafted from birch wood and veneer, showcases a design where triangular forms play a central role. Each side of the chair features these geometric shapes prominently. Its construction is highlighted by two upper panels that are seamlessly integrated into a base characterized by symmetrical triangular cuts, which add a unique complexity to the design. This chair, which bears the nickname “Samurai Chair,” presents a visual resemblance to the dignified posture of a seated samurai, a nod to its strong design cues. The selection of birch wood for the chair is not arbitrary; the wood’s distinctive grain and subtle tones serve to enhance the chair’s bold silhouette while the finish in vintage yellow adds a touch of antiquity to the piece.
