As a small symbol of great Japanese postmodern design we have created illustration of this spectacular chair/sculpture.
Its author is famous Japanese design Shigeru Uchida (born 1943). Some of his chairs designs from this period are geometrical, as well as very graphic exercises in furniture design. Relatively minimalist chair called Nirvana from 1981 is expressed by its base made out of curve enameled and brass-plated steel rod. The Circle upholstery became flag of the Japan for us this time.
Uchida studied Kuwasawa Design School. His major works are a series of boutiques for Yohji Yamamoto, the Japanese Government Pavilion for Tsukuba Expo 1985; the Hotel Il Palazzo in Fukuoka; the lobby of the Kyoto Hotel; the Kobe Fashion Museum; the Ji-an, So-an, Gyo-an tea rooms; and the Mojiko Hotel.
