Torii is a simple yet sophisticated Bensen design available as either as a chair, a counter or bar height stool. The chair is defined by its minimal appearance, simple yet traditional construction and a remarkable amount of comfort and sturdiness.
The name Torii offers a connection to the wooden entry arches of Japanese Shinto shrines and translates as “bird perch,” perfectly describing the stool’s distinct proportions, traditional joinery and the sense of harmony inherent in design that is beautifully and fully resolved.
Based simply on function, durability and design, Torii is the perfect chair for the home, office or commercial use.
