In reference to Substance, the chair he designed for Magis, Naoto Fukasawa says: “I wanted to try working on a chair where there is a simple cross-junction of two sets of U-shaped legs. Then I wanted to put a simple shell on top. Combining the bending details of the legs and the bottom curve of the shell creates such a friendly feeling. It is usual to have a chair with a shell and legs that extend off the shell, whereas the bending detail on Substance evokes a fresh quality.”
