The material of the seat is designed to come out from the inside of the pipe. It represents regeneration. Piano Black has the image of cosmetics and is characterised by a glossy feel that looks like a lipstick cut diagonally. It goes well with both clothes and kimono. Brushed steel and cypress are excellent.To give them back their pride and their duties, we offered them a design in which the pipe was the protagonis.
