Buchi: Japanese Wooden Toys and Children’s Furniture
Unveiling at Maison et Objet 2013, Buchi is a line of playful and high-quality wooden toys and children's furniture. Made by craftspeople in Buchi's Japanese studio, Buchi products feature sinuous curves, colorful highlights, and fun functionality.
Simple Wooden Toys and Furniture Work Perfectly for Education Markets
Just the right size and lightweight to boot, Buchi's Chair and Toybox make a perfect reading spot for any classroom or home. The knockdown Chair is an ideal first chair: narrow openings mean the chair is assembled without any metallic parts, and a hole in the back serves as a convenient handle. The Toybox sits on wheels, which enables children to move it about whenever and wherever they want. A removable lid gives great access to what's inside too. Both pieces are made of beech and finished with colorful edges.
Buchi toys should fire children's imaginations. Beautiful maple wood and touches of whimsical color make the Domino Game and Toy Cars fun to touch and play with. The dominoes make "a nice tinkling sound" and the toy cars have "wheels that roll smoothly." All Buchi products pay attention to shape, form, and function, evincing lovely simplicity and fine craftsmanship.
