JAPAN 2

BY THE 1970S, THE EFFORTS that the Japanese furniture industry had made to align itself with Western society (and thus benefit from selling to a thriving Western market) were reaping rewards. Indeed, so comprehensively had Japanese designers caught up with their Western counterparts that when Postmodernism emerged as a dominant trend in design, the Japanese were among its leading exponents.

In 1972, Arata Isozaki produced his Marilyn chair, a protean Postmodern design that borrowed from an unlikely spectrum of sources. The chair’s curvaceous back was based on the shapely form of Marilyn Monroe, while the overall shape was clearly derived from the chair designs of the early 20th-century Glaswegian designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh (see pp.364-65)...

Against a background of such rampant demand, the bold ideas of Postmodernism once again rose to the surface. Bright, brash, and self-consciously smart, the aesthetic espoused

Coffee and occasional tables

The coffee or occasional table as an item of furniture has no parallel in past centuries in the West, although low tables, used mainly for dining purposes, have been in use for many centuries in the Far East. The low table has, therefore, no need to reflect the images of past centuries and can thus afford the designer considerable scope, and has become an item of furniture much favoured by the designer-maker and amateur alike.

As a result, in recent years the coffee table has developed for beyond being a mere surface from which to serve tea or coffee to become an important focal point in many interiors...
