HLF concept medical furnishing

Medical furnishing 

The wood and leather in furniture stay “alive” while breathing continuously. It plays a role as a natural conditioner, adjusting humidity and eliminating odor. We put every effort to minimize use of chemicals in our products. We try to make furniture and to use with "Natural wood" or "Medical wood™" has only air seasoning for over 10 yrs. without artificial seasoning.  Those are "Medical furnishing" to heal tired contemporary people.  For customers with allergies, we can also offer solid unpainted furniture.
HLF concept our materials

Our materials  

We have a strong belief in using materials that are of complete traceability. We specially select each component of our products from the region, such as Hida oak, HIDA Leather, and region's wild boar leather and deer leather.  Our furniture making process begins tanning leather with vegetable tannins. This enables us to condition the texture and colour of the leather to our like. By using materials that can trace both wood and leather , we are producing next-generation furniture that makes a difference from other furniture that can satisfy customers with high awareness of the environment.
HLF concept our design

Our design

We do not design only to draw attention that aim for design that is unnoticeable, that feels as if it has been there. The most important thing is how long the furniture will be used. We do not change models easily.
