4 Collection Catalogue 2022/24 With our deep understanding of materials, coupled with fine Japanese aesthetics and craftsmanship, we’ve been making long-life furniture that honours and celebrates nature without taking it for granted for over half a century. From Hokkaido with care & respect
5 From Hokkaido with care & respect The CondeHouse story is one of nature, place and a steadfast commitment to quality craftsmanship. Our solid-wood products, produced on the forest-rich Japanese island of Hokkaido – the country’s traditional furniture-making centre – are a kind of ‘second nature’, where timeless design and locally drawn production and artisanal expertise ensure the fullest expression of living materials in finished chairs and tables that last a lifetime. This catalogue features an edit of our most iconic pieces, all of which consciously go against the grain of fleeting design trends – instead marrying the ageless beauty of natural wood grain with pared-down forms authored by the likes of celebrated designers Naoto Fukasawa, Nendo, Peter Maly and Michael Schneider. Their visual ease and rich haptic quality make them equally at home in an array of residential and contract settings the world over. But, wherever they go, they always take with them the essence of Hokkaido.
6 Collection Catalogue 2022/24 Materials and Sustainability In combining a judicious material selection with traditional handcraft and computer-aided production technology, we’ve succeeded at CondeHouse in creating furniture that not only uses and respects the stuff of nature, it allows it to live on in a new form.
7 From Hokkaido with care & respect With each piece taking weeks to complete, it's made to last a lifetime. Or, rather, three lifetimes – materially, constructionally and in terms of its design. We’re definitely not in the obsolescence game. Sustainability is built into the enduring visual and tactile longevity of all of our products. What’s more, we’ve been planting oak trees on our own land since the turn of the millennium in an attempt to replace the natural resources we use. ‘The nature of Hokkaido is the very DNA of the CondeHouse brand,’ is how our company president Noriyoshi Someya puts it. We’re ever-conscious of the amount of materials we use, too, in both our solid-wood and veneer construction. Our bent wood, for example, comprises strips of veneer laminated together and shaped in large presses, rather than steam-bent, resulting in the most efficient use of every tree. Photo: Henry Phillips

18 KORENTO Armchair Mikko Halonen Japanese Oak – from the northern island of Hokkaido – is the material starting point for award-winning Finnish designer Mikko Halonen’s latest collaboration with CondeHouse – the KORENTO Armchair. With the backrest, armrests and legs articulated as one continuous, flowing element, it presents a harmonious visual proposition that is matched by the level of comfort it provides. Its clever construction means that the seat element appears delicately balanced on the chair’s frame. This is a strongly architectural design that’s designed and built to stand the test of time.

20 SPLINTER Armchair Nendo Celebrated Japanese studio Nendo – founded by Oki Sato in 2005 – is known for its minimalist designs, whose reduction belies the consideration and innovation they reflect. The Splinter Armchair, which comes in three versions – wood seat, upholstered seat, and full shell – is no exception. ‘We splintered each piece of wood as though peeling it away,’ says the designer, resulting in backrests that elegantly divide to become both armrests and legs, and create a harmonious whole. Respecting the material, Nendo went with the grain, so that the wood would retain its original pliancy. Collection Catalogue 2022/24

24 KOTAN Chair Naoto Fukasawa The latest design to emerge from CondeHouse’s ongoing collaboration with internationally acclaimed designer Naoto Fukasawa, KOTAN is a light, literally light, yet materially robust and stackable chair that is built to last. KOTAN utilises Japanese Ash and leather or fabric upholstery to create a pared-down yet friendly form that fits perfectly into both residential and contract contexts, in particular hospitality settings like restaurants and cafés. Sustainability is key here: minimal material usage and a design language that transcends trends make for a long-life product. Collection Catalogue 2022/24

26 SAN Chair Michael Schneider A minimal material usage delivers an impressive spatial articulation in Berlin designer Michael Schneider’s latest collaboration with CondeHouse. SAN – which means three in Japanese – derives its name from the intersection of the three key elements that go to make up its form: its front and back legs, and its elegantly curved backrest. With both upholstered seat and back, SAN – made from Japanese Birch – creates an ultracomfortable space for the user to sit into while maintaining a pared-down silhouette that makes its introduction into both commercial and private settings a harmonious one.

40 TEN Coffee Tables Michael Schneider German designer Michael Schneider’s TEN coffee tables for CondeHouse speak the same eloquent design language as that of the rest of his TEN collection. Available in four sizes, their solid, but friendly shaped table tops – in either Japanese Ash, Japanese Oak or Walnut – appear to almost float, thanks to their minimal, filigree metal bases.

42 IPPONGI Table CondeHouse The IPPONGI family – comprising dining and coffee tables – lets its materiality sing.

50 HAKAMA Table Peter Maly The HAKAMA Table, created by German designer Peter Maly, delivers strongly in terms of both utilitarian function – its durability is immediately apparent in its solid form – and sculptural expression: the latter referencing, in silhouette, the art of traditional Japanese calligraphy.

52 ONE Table Jin Kuramoto Japanese designer Jin Kuramoto’s distinctive ONE Table for CondeHouse is a study in contrasts. Its solid Japanese Oak top – which rests on a column-like base – is almost 1.5 inches thick, yet possesses a supreme softness thanks to its expertly milled and sanded round edge. The robustness of the table base, meanwhile, gently tapers, to soften its monolithic appearance, with a rounded finish at its very bottom to create a small sense of optical lightness – and to protect toes from stubbing!

Exquisite cabinet-making meets a richly graphic, origami-like play in a coffee table whose four separately articulated sections slide open to reveal internal storage space. Designed by Atilla Kuzu, BARRINGER – made from either Japanese Oak or Walnut – is at once a piece of micro-architecture and high-end product design, transcending the whims of fashion.

Collection Catalogue 2022/24 58 2 / 6 We take the holistic view at CondeHouse: for us, our finishes, as well as our textile and leather upholstery options, are as integral a part of a furniture piece’s design as its form or wood type, delivering for years to come on durability and aesthetics. Finishes & Materials
From Hokkaido with care & respect 597 The application of wood and finish differs depending on the individual items. The colour in the images may appear different from that on the actual products. Japanese Oak is likely to have tiger stripes. Other natural marks may also appear on top boards, backrests, arms, etc., which are an intentional part of the design, providing a beautiful harmony.

Collection Catalogue 2022/24 60 Furniture specified for contract settings has to deliver on three fronts. It must, first and foremost, be robust and not fail. Secondly, it needs to deliver continued comfort, in spite of its heavy usage. And thirdly, it needs to remain aesthetically relevant. CondeHouse For Professionals
