The “obi:s” chair is a high-quality, one-of-a-kind, made-to-order chair made by handcrafting unused kimono obi into chair upholstery. “Obi:s” can be used in hotels, wedding halls and restaurants, or as a special chair to complement interior decoration in a variety of settings.
This is a chair with an elegant obi that reminds you of a nostalgic Japanese era. While waiting to check-in, recuperate in a splendid chair in the lobby, thinking, “What a wonderful hotel!” In a garden at a ryotei, an elegant, fine-dining restaurant. In a Japanese-style room at a ryotei, an elegant, fine-dining restaurant. I’d be happy if you could feel that way.
A chair exemplifying traditional Japanese quality made with an obi, an exquisitely detailed kimono sash. Kimono and obi, the traditional culture of Japan. Due to changes in Japanese lifestyle, opportunities to wear a kimono have been decreasing.
The company wants to infuse traditional Japanese culture and spirit into modern lifestyle and to create new opportunities for pristine, unused obis to come to life. With this in mind, the all-new Obi Chair “obi:s” was born.
“Obi:s” was born as a challenge to integrate Japanese traditional culture into new design. The elegant Nishijin obi, a traditional textile in Kyoto, and the lustrous sharp form of the chair has a design with a sense of presence that accentuates various spaces.
The company would like to offer you “obi:s” with all of their heart. You can find dozens of obis available for you to choose from or you can also bring in your own obis.
