Isamu Kenmochi

Japanese, 1912 - 1971
Isamu Kenmochi (1912 – 1971)
Isamu Kenmochi is widely recognized as one of the pioneers of Japan’s design industry. He embraced Westernism as part of his move to create what he called Japanese Modern furniture. In 1990, production of his “Stacking Stool” surpassed 1 million units. The stool embodies simplicity, beauty and functionality, all which represent the style of Kenmochi.
During the summer of 1950, a brief collaboration with sculptor Isamu Noguchi resulted in the bamboo basket chair. The chair was never manufactured and the prototype was lost but later recreated from photographs.
