Vintage Freedom Bench

Daisaku Cho began his career at Inoue Kogyo, where he contributes to projects such as Antonin Raymond’s music hall in Takasaki City. Subsequently, in 1947, he joins Junzo Sakakura’s office, where he participates in notable designs like Kabuki actor Koshiro Matsumoto’s residence. Following Sakakura’s passing in 1971, he establishes his own office and temporarily steps away from furniture design after the launch of Itoki’s Freedom bench.

In 1993, at the age of 71, he rediscovers his passion for furniture design after being inspired by an exhibition. His renewed focus emphasizes comfort and geometric shapes. In addition to furniture, he ventures into various creative realms, exploring the design of tea ceremony bowls and glass vessels.

The Freedom Bench designed in 1973 is one of the many masterpieces from his long design tenure. Produced by Itoki, it is a unique design that doesn’t come by in good condition.
