The Persimmon Chair by Daisaku Choh


We were very excited to see our Aerial fabrics on these beautiful midcentury Japanese chairs, designed by Daisaku Choh. Choh (1921 - 2014) trained in architecture and furniture design at the Tokyo University of Arts. He worked on the furniture for the International House of Japan 1955 and for Japanese pavillion at the Milan Triennale before establishing the Choh Daisaku Architectural Design Office in 1972.

The Persimmon chair here was designed in 1960 and first exhibited at the 12th Milan Triennale where the Japanese exhibition was awarded a gold medal. It remains an icon of midcentury Japanese design.

The chairs are available through Metrocs - a Tokyo based furniture store specializing in Twentieth Century and contemporary furniture. For more information about the Persimmon chair please see here

The chairs above are upholstered in the A and B side of our Wrekin fabric and the chairs below in our Chillerton. You can see the full range of our Aerial upholstery fabrics here.
