The PAGES Chair was inspired by diversity. Even though natural sitting positions can differ based on physique, clothing, and posture, the length of the chair leg has traditionally been static. The PAGES Chair allows you to adjust the seat height and backrest by simply turning its colorful padded “Pages.”
The PAGES Chair journey started at the Milano Salone exhibit in Italy in 2005. The basic design concept, created by designer Noriko Hashida, is to “flip a page.” The delicate process of adjusting the height and color of your chair is as easy as flipping a page. The product then went on to furniture and design exhibits in Stockholm, Japan, Shanghai, Korea, and NY and received high praise from people around the globe.
This chair represents the creativity and craftsmanship of Japanese artisans. We wanted more people to learn about and experience our product and hence started this crowd funding campaign. We hope you enjoy this practical yet simple chair that can be used in everyday life.
