A furniture manufacturer from Yamagata prefecture, Tendo Mokko uses a patented technique known as molded plywood to produce beautiful, flowing lines – best represented by the iconic Butterfly Stool, designed by Sori Yanagi and widely admired by design nerds around the world. They've also worked with the likes of designer Isamu Kenmochi and architects Arata Isozaki and Kenzo Tange, and rank among the most internationally respected Japanese design houses. This Hamamatsucho showroom is where to experience Tendo Mokko's products up close – and find out if it's worth investing a cool ¥50,000 in a futuristic-looking chair.
