Legendary Chair Craftsman, Shigeki Miyamoto
This event has ended.
Shigeki Miyamoto (1937-) remains active at the forefront today as an upholsterer and Japan’s first furniture modeler. Engaged in fields ranging from furniture repair to the creation of overseas designer furniture and seats for vehicles, Miyamoto has won solid trust in Japan and around the world. A craftsman uncompromising in his stance on chair creation, he has achieved a reputation for seemingly superhuman feats and earned the nickname, “God of Chairs.” This exhibition examines Miyamoto’s work and its foundation of knowledge and technical skill deriving from long years of experience, through some 35 exhibits, including creations by designers and architects Miyamoto has collaborated with.
