It looks beautiful until you sit on it.

The chair looks fabulous, and Knoll was great about getting samples to me so I have a chair that looks amazing. If you want a chair that people actually want to sit on, this isn't it. It's like sitting on a beautifully upholstered board. Since it isn't returnable, I would not recommend this chair to anyone who actually expects to sit on it.

After graduating from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1953, Takahama went to Italy to work for the Gavina Group. While there, in 1965 he introduced a knocked-down storage unit, called "DaDa", to great acclaim. His simple but well-harmonized work exemplifies his internationally acclaimed talent for his balance of the Japanese aesthetic and Western culture.
