Masterpiece from Oda Collection Vol.12 “Chairs of Japan”


In 2021, Higashikawa, one of the main production areas of Asahikawa furniture, was established “Good Chair Day” with architect Kengo Kuma. In conjunction with this effort, this exhibition will curate and display world-famous chairs from “Oda Collection” by theme with the 14th of each month as a replacement day.


From July 14th, 2023 to October 13th, 2023, we would like to introduce chairs that was born in post-war Japan and is still loved by many people. In the past, Japanese people lived on the floor for many years. After entering the era of Meiji, various chairs began to be used after the civilization bloomed, but in general, chairs were still a long way off. Chairs began to spread among people after the war, when American culture spread rapidly.
