Based on the chair designed by Junzo Sakakura, the Persimmon Chair was first released at Milano Triennale, where Sakakura Associates designed the space, and Choh, as a staff member of the associates took charge of the furniture design. With the molded plywood flame, it shows beautiful organic line. The idea of the back plate's shape comes from the curve of persimmon fruit. The chair was redesigned by Choh in 2006.
