Greg Moogk was inspired by the traditional Japanese snack, Onigiri, when he came up with the idea for this set of beautiful furniture. The essence of Onigiri (triangular rice ball) is in the way the seaweed wraps around the rice.

Greg wanted to replicate the experience of unwrapping an object: anticipation, unwrapping, exploration, and discovery. Onigiri consists of 3 chairs, 3 cushions, and a table/storage container. The chairs are made of maple that was laminated and bent to become the form a traditional Japanese chair, zaisu. The table is made of solid walnut. All of it was handmade by Greg.
