Inspired by the classic Scandinavian cabinetmaker chairs, the construction is light and transparent, clearly showing of all elements of the chair.

The cigar shaped profiles tells the story of where the chairs need to be strong and robust, therefore creating a natural flow throughout the chair.
With a rather small footprint, wide armrests and high backrest, this chair is meant for both relaxing and engaged conversations.

The name “Summit” refers to this meeting and discussion between people, where we imagine our chairs would play host to.

Ariake is a furniture brand founded by Legnatec and Hirata Chair, two factories from the furniture producing town
of Morodomi in Saga prefecture, Japan. Ariake is named after the Ariake Sea in Southern Japan and also means “daybreak”
in Japanese symbolizing a new chapter for its founding manufacturers: Legnatec and Hirata Chair Manufacture Co.
which have been producing furniture in Japan for over 40 years.
It is Ariake’s philosophy that furniture is made for social situations where people live, work and eat together.
The Ariake brand was created during two intensive workshops in Morodomi where furniture designers, art directors,
craftsmen and photographers lived, worked and ate together to shape and generate a collective energy
and mutual trust that would define the soul of the brand.

The products made by Ariake is inspired by the spirituality of Japanese culture and urban living contexts which is seen
in the combination of handmade- and machine-created products.
Each Ariake collection piece is 100% made in Saga, Japan by Hirata Chair and Legnatec,
producers of Japanese furniture since more than 40 years.
