“Harmony, simplicity and serenity characterize the Suzanne lounge collection by Japanese designer, Kazuhide Takahma. These marvelously simple pieces, first designed for the Gavina Group of Milan in 1965, are examples of Takahama’s gift for fusing Eastern and Western design principles. The elegant pre-formed lounge seating comprises a chair, double chair, settee and sofa, made of a tubular steel base with polished chrome finish. With its organic lines, distinctive details in the base and supreme comfort, Suzanne provides unlimited seating possibilities for commercial interiors, and is especially suited to universities, public and reception areas and hospitality applications.
After graduating from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1953, Takahama went to Italy to work for the Gavina Group. While there, in 1965 he introduced a knocked-down storage unit called “DaDa,,” to great acclaim. His simple but well-harmonized work exemplifies his internationally acclaimed talent for his balance of the Japanese aesthetic and Western culture.”
