After graduating from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1953, Kazuhide Takahama designed the Japanese Pavilion for the Milan Triennale. While supervising the installation, Takahama met Dino Gavina, who invited him to design for his design company, Gavina SpA. Over the next decade, Takahama introduced several designs through Gavina, including a knocked-down storage unit called DaDa and a semi-circular shelving system called GEA.
Takahama went to work in Bologna and in the 1970s designed lacquer furniture with clean lines for B&B Italia and Simon Gavina, among others. In addition to furniture, Kazuhide also designed lighting.

These piano lacquered high back chairs have been marked and wear the Simon Gavina brand. They are more comfortabel to sit than your first view would allow you to think. Good condition consistent with age and use.
