Hiromatsu company is located in Fukuoka Prefecture in Okinawa City, Japan, and is a major producer of environmentally friendly furniture for children, engaged in sustainable design, with respect for nature and wood resource and towards the legacy that has to be left to the future generations. Through his creations the designer tries to bring a touch of Zen in the nursery, highlighting the well known Japanese simplicity with a discreet message about emotion and beauty that inspire children’s creativity and imagination. The forms approached by the designer are non standard, they express tenderness and purity, are cute and create a positive emotion, they do not address only to the eyes but also to the soul. The pieces of furniture in this collection offer to the children the possibility to approach the educational processes like a game and as a place to relax and a comfortable sleeping space. Made of pine wood, each piece from the collection is unique and can be made on demand. The mere sight of the adorable bunny – chairs gives a sense of joy and takes you back to a world of innocence.
