Episode 9: My only sad memory about Denmark. The cupboard I ended up bidding on twice.

Episode 9 My only sad memory about Denmark. The cupboard I ended up bidding on twice. Kaare Klint Cupboard for six people, 1930. Published in 1927 and manufactured three years later as the world’s first storage furniture based on the “concept of analysis.” Designed in two versions for a family of four and a family of six, it was developed by closely studying and analyzing the types, sizes, and quantities of tableware used by families. When the sliding doors are opened, trays fit into finely pitched grooves, allowing adjustment to the exact height of the tableware, eliminating wasted space. Only a few units of the six-person model were produced, making […]

Episode 8: It took me two years to finally pay off the debt using manuscript fees and lecture fees, but it was a painful memory.

Episode 8 It took me two years to finally pay off the debt using manuscript fees and lecture fees, but it was a painful memory. Bendt Winge Easy Chair & Ottoman 1958 – 1959 Among the Nordic chairs in Oda Collection, this is a relatively rare Norwegian piece. It features an elbow design reminiscent of corners and the ability to change the angle of the back and seat by moving the metal fittings on the frame. However, due to problems with its structure, it was never mass-produced, and it is thought that this one set of prototypes, made in his own workshop, is probably the only one left in the […]

Episode 7 “There is a Japanese man who is reevaluating our country’s chairs.” A connection with an elderly couple connected by news coverage in Denmark. Hans J. Wegner Hammock chair, 1967 It is one of the seven chaise longues announced by Wegner, and as its name suggests, it has a structure that holds the body with a net-like rope. Like the “Hoop Chair” introduced in Episode 2, the rope is woven with metal clips that do not form knots, making it very comfortable to sleep on. At the time, the wood was made of oak, but now PP Møbler uses ash. While actively collecting chairs, this is a piece that […]

Episode 6: I saw a chair at someone’s house more than 25 years ago and I couldn’t say I wanted it when I left.

Episode 6 I saw a chair at someone’s house more than 25 years ago and I couldn’t say I wanted it when I left. Ubunji Kidokoro Bamboo Chair (1937) A chair with a cantilever structure (cantilever, protruding) that utilizes the elasticity of bamboo. Long and thin strips of bamboo are arranged vertically from the back to the seat and fasted to the crosspieces on the back of the seat with rivets. The frame is also made of bamboo, and it is an eight-ply lamella-bent material (all piled up and bent in the same direction), which had never existed before. Some bamboo cantilevers were also made overseas. A friend invited me […]

Episode 5: I happened to meet what I once gave up 30 years later. After all, God is watching.

Episode 5 I happened to meet what I once gave up 30 years later. After all, God is watching. Nanna Ostgor Chicken picture platter (production year unknown) In Denmark, thick, heavy and hard pottery like this platter is called “STEN TOY”. English stoneware. In the 1980s, when Mr. Oda went to Denmark for research purposes, there were only one or two vintage shops. He had it displayed at his home in Osaka. I liked the generous painting. I forgot the price, but I’m sure I had a hard time buying it. (laughs). I think I found this platter around 1984-1987. At that time, I used to go to Denmark once […]

Episode 4: 200,000 yen just for the pot. One by one, it took 20 years collecting almost all items.

Episode 4 200,000 yen just for the pot. One by one, it took 20 years collecting almost all items. Gertrud Vasegaard Capella (1975) “Capella” is a newer serios among Vasegaard’s work. Older ones include “Tea Set (1956)”, “Gemma (1962)”, and “Gemini (1962)”, among which Mr. Oda says he likes Capella the best. Since it was only made in small quantities by Royal Copenhagen, it was difficult to find it on the market, and Mr. Oda had to spend a lot of time and money to collect them. The first thing I found was the Pot. It was 200,000 yen at “Lystig” in Kita-Aoyama. “If this series come in, be sure […]

Episode 3 At an auction in Denmark, the agent forgot the instruction the buyer to “compete up to 10 times the expected bid price” and it heated up. Finn Juhl Chieftain Chair, 1949 A Finn Juhl masterpiece, this historic chair was designed for use by the fireplace in your living room. In the spring of 1949, he started drawing around 10 in the morning and by 2 or 3 in the middle of the night, the form and details were completed as he had envisioned. According to Mr. Oda, “There is no other chair that is as majestic, dignified, intelligent, and clas Hired a Japanese expatriate in Denmark to collect […]

Episode 2: Since I visited Mr. Wegner’s atelier in 1984, we had been in contact for 20 years. One day, out of nowhere, this chair was sent to me.

Episode 2 Since I visited Mr. Wegner’s atelier in 1984, we had been in contact for 20 years. One day, out of nowhere, this chair was sent to me. Hans J. Wegner Hoop Chair, 1986 A good example of how advances in science and technology make new designs possible. PP Møbler’s second generation Søren Pedersen devised a machine to make the round frame, which was originally designed with metal pipes, by molding wood, and realized the current structure. It features a radial rope work, and the rope used for the yacht is stopped with small metal fittings. An idea for not making a knot considering the comfort on the back. […]

Episode 1 The very first chair in Oda Collection. This is where my “act of studying chairs under adversity” starts. Le Corbusier + Pierre Jeannert + Charlotte Perriand LC-4 Chaise Longue B-306 (1928) The seat is mounted on a steel frame, and the rubber wrapped around the pipe supports the arc frame, allowing the seat angle to be changed smoothly. In addition to the current model, there is also a type with a welded pipe tip, both of which are in Oda Collection. A bamboo version designed by Perriand was introduced at Cassina a few years ago. When I was newly married, I paid 10 times for salary deduction. And […]
