Okamura, founded in Yokohama, Japan in 1945 is a leading international furniture manufacturer renowned for its exceptional designs and quality engineering. While refusing to stray from our motto “Quality Pays For Itself” we have been innovating for over 70 years – offering products that consistently exceed our customer’s high expectations.
This year at 100% Design we will be launching our newest task chair- Contessa Seconda - a renewal of our most-loved chair.
The first Contessa model, created from collaboration between Okamura and Giugiaro Design, has been our flagship product since its launch in 2002. Working again with Giugiaro Design, we have updated not only the look but also the feel of the Contessa, to meet and exceed the demands of the modern workplace.
With added features such as a Multi-Density cushion seat, new mesh and 4D Smart Operation arms, Contessa has never been more comfortable. The new, thinner backrest frames maintain the strength of the original chair whilst achieving an even lighter look. Updates in colour variations give a mature yet gentle feel to any environment and the new option of a white frame shows Contessa in a whole new light.
Contessa Seconda is the evolution of an icon – for the office of today, and of tomorrow.
More about Okamura
With our foundations in aviation, Okamura’s early creations included Japan’s first post-war aeroplane and an automatic torque converter for automobiles. So, 70 years on, although our main focus has moved from planes and cars to office environments, we are still firmly rooted in our engineering background and still aim to move people through the quality of our products.
