Stylecraft has added another outstanding furniture supplier to its illustrious list, the Japanese craft-based furniture maker, Ritzwell. Alongside designs by Italy’s Tacchini and Arper, Australia’s One/third, Luxxbox, Derlot, Keith Melbourne and Ross Gardam, Ritzwell brings a hamronising element.
Their sculptural style has a Scandanavian influence with a Japanese aesthetic and refinement of detail and line. The Rivage range is expressed in the design of its arms – modelled on the time-honoured weapon of Japan, the katana, or Samurai sword. Seats are designed for ergonomic comfort.
Ritzwell was established in Western Japan in 1992 and produced for the commercial market. Gradually as the market changed so did the company to meet the need for residential products. The Ritzwell philosophy is to combine fine aesthetics with practicality, where art meets function and finds a balance. Products are available in walnut, black cherry and oak timber.
