General build quality. I've sat in a daubed in their showroom, where I almost fell through due to the saggy weave etc.

For what it's worth, the price point is significantly lower than what you'd pay for top tier makers. Not sure something from a similarly priced competitor like Hay would be any better.

Anyone know what this vase is?

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Also, I'm looking for an aesthetically beautiful office chair that is genuinely comfortable for long-haul work binges but has no chrome components, and doesn't have that rather tacky ergonomic aesthetic that is favoured by modern workplaces — would greatly appreciate suggestions.

The 'Titus I' by Jaime Hayon, from his "New Roman" collection for paola.c (presented at maison&objet 2015)

I use the Cappellini Lotus by Jasper Morrison for my home office. Comes with different back heights, with and without arms, with and without wheels, and in different base finishes.

Any outdoor dining table / furniture recommendations? We just had our backyard redone and, due to that expense (we had a garage built too) we're not looking to spend too much. At the risk of exposing my pedestrian tastes and limited means, I'm partial to Modernica's outdoor Case Study Dining Table, https://modernica.net/shop/outdoor/case-studyr-stainless-dining-table, but am feeling that's even a bit more than I want to spend right now.

What about the Palisade table/chair collection from Hay, designed by the Bouroullec brothers? The long table is ~$1,500 USD retail. Side chairs are ~$200 each.

Also, if you need a bench, the Jasper Morrison's Botan by Maruni in pine works outdoors. We use one in our foyer.

Interesting. I'll check those out. Thanks @mafoofan.

Edit -- I especially like the look of that low lounge chair.

The Kawai-tsugite is pretty awesome.

That's very cool.

 

When I visited Nikko, in Japan, earlier this year we went to Rinno-ji temple, which is currently being extensively renovated. 

 

The whole temple was covered with a massive, temporary building that was 6-7 stories tall and you could climb up to the top of it and look down upon the renovation procedures, including the disassembly of much of the temple, the recovery of usable beams, and the replacement of other beams. 

 

Anyway, in the observation gallery, as well as a few films of the renovation process, there was a hands-on exhibit of the carpentry used in the construction of temples and shrines, such as Rinno-ji. It included a whole lot of models of the various joins used in Japanese woodworking, including many of the ones shown on The Joinery's Twitter account. My son had a great time taking them apart and putting them together, so as to see how they locked together, depending on where pressure/weight was applied to the join. It was really interesting.
