CONDE HOUSE will be participating in the imm cologne - the International furniture and interiors fair 2019, held in Germany every January. This fair is one of the largest furniture and interiors fairs in the world, following the Milano Salone held in Italy. This is the 15th fair ever since our local subsidiary was established in Germany in 2005. Some of the main exhibits in 2018 were the YUKAR and TEN collections gaining great recognition, and we have marked record-breaking business results in these consecutive years.
In 2019, we will be exhibiting new living models from the TEN collection and a new collection, KOTAN, designed by Naoto Fukasawa, along with many other items having been receiving good reviews since their launch in June.

The TEN dining collection, earning great popularity in the overseas markets since its launch in 2016, has now grown to become one of the major global products of CONDE HOUSE. The new living room items from the TEN collection were made to naturally blend in with the TEN dining collection: Living armchairs with a combination of sharp and smooth lines that embrace the occupant softly; four types of coffee tables with a beautiful contrast of a solid wood top and delicate iron legs. CONDE HOUSE will be presenting new inspirations to the world by uncovering these products.

“This chair of minimal design consists only of
a round backrest and seating and round bar shaped legs.”
The concept of the chair, representing the third collection produced in collaboration with him, is “a long-life product of the next era.” Strength, comfort, and lightness were achieved at a high level through the process to eliminate its elements to simplicity. This remarkable chair will last for years to come. The name KOTAN means village or town in the language of Hokkaido natives. Its versatile use allows for it to be used alone, as a set of chairs at the dining table where family members gather, or in cafes and restaurants. No matter where it is used, ambiance becomes gentle by the Hokkaido ash material.
