This beautiful yet practical chair is made by Hida Sangyo, a well respected furniture maker in Takayama, Japan, which has been building fine furniture for almost a century. It began when two travelers came to the town of Hida Takayama, a mountainous area near the Northern Japanese Alps, and passed down the technique of Western bentwood furniture. From here, a furniture company was born. To this day, Hida continues merge western aesthetics with traditional Japanese crafts techniques and local materials.
