Light and contemporary in its look and feel, the new Katō armchair is a signature piece from Lyndon, showcasing the company’s specialism in exquisitely crafted timber furniture ideal for commercial, hospitality and residential settings.

With luxurious wood grain textures on show, Katō may have hints of Japanese and mid-century modern inspiration but it conveys a sense of timeless elegance. Contoured surfaces, organic lines with an absence of hard edges give Katō a tranquil quality, augmented by the considered comfort of its upholstery.

“The pull stitch detail across Katō’s back cushion rests at the same height as the horseshoe-shaped armrest that wraps around the back. The cushioning and stitching give it a soft and welcoming look – it’s what our furniture is all about,” says Alex Ranson of the Lyndon design team.


Traditional woodworking skills and cutting-edge timber shaping technology have been applied side-by-side to achieve Katō’s expertly crafted frame. Each joint is seamlessly finished with the support rails branching from the leg posts like limbs from a tree. Available in oak or walnut and stained to our standard colours, Katō can be specified to harmonise and complement any space.

“From a contemporary fabric set within an oak frame to a supple leather in a walnut frame, this product can suit a whole spectrum of environments – either as a statement piece or as an element that generates a specific atmosphere within a designer or architect’s vision,” says Phil Bennett of the Lyndon design team.


Defined by its gentle organic lines, considered proportions and light aesthetic, Katō is built to last and has been designed for timeless appeal. Its soft form transcends informal meeting, hospitality and domestic settings and with its comfortable upholstery and broad, tactile armrest, sitting in Katō is a sensory experience.

“Your hand rests naturally over the rounded end of the arm, with the wood grain texture at your fingertips for a very satisfying feel. The arm has an elliptical profile with a wide surface which feels substantial and comfortable when you clasp it to sit down or pull yourself out of the chair,” says Alex Ranson.
