Zaishu is artwork that functions as seat, table or box, combining award winning design with ethical and responsible production methods. Transcending social and cultural barriers, Zaishu collaborates internationally with various artists such as David Bromley, Stewart Russell from ‘Spacecraft’ and the Florence Broadhurst print archive. Zaishu also features artwork from various community groups, endangered tribal art, as well as hand painted work from the last of the Bollywood artists.
Designed and made in Australia from native plantation pine, using water-based inks and varnish, Zaishu has a ‘Good Environmental Choice’ certification and comes flat-packed in collectable limited editions which simply slot together. My favourite is Antique Kimono (top image), featuring rare patterns from 16th century Edo period Japan, which can be bought from zaishu’s website (price is AUD$350).
