About

With minimal functionality, the aesthetic and structure are kept as simple as ever. Its simplicity and attention to detail characterize the e.n.a. chair.

Targeting co-creation spaces that require stylish solutions, e.n.a. was born from our collaboration with ITO Design where the goal was to create a chair that could represent Okamura's existing lineup.

The Perfect Chair for Places Where People Gather

Our goal was to create an environmentally friendly chair with a simple and timeless design and optimal seating comfort.

Collaboration with ITO Design

Targeting co-creation spaces that require stylish solutions, e.n.a. was born from our collaboration with ITO Design where the goal was to create a chair that could represent Okamura's existing lineup. ITO Design is a German design firm that has produced a variety of furniture designs and received numerous design awards. To create a classic look, particular emphasis was placed on achieving the appearance of seamless unity between the shell and pipe leg frame.

Taking Seating Comfort Seriously

How can something be made super-lightweight whilst still honoring the design and maintaining its strength? The development team wracked their brains over this question. They made prototypes, checked the structure, checked the comfort and smoothness of the reclining motion, and then looked for places to shave off weight. A significant shift in thinking seemed necessary. Andreas Krob and Joachim Brüske came to Japan to work on the strategy together.

For Training & Conference

The design is simple, so there is a sense of unity even if there are many of them.

For Collaboration Area

It comes with casters for easy mobility, making it ideal for both internal and external social gatherings.

For Cafeteria

The seat pad type is perfect for cafes and meetings.

Comfort & Functions

With its gradual curve, the seat shell provides excellent comfort. The backrest shell, seat and frame are formed from one single piece of resin, giving e.n.a. a sense of unity.

The softly curved shape of the back holds the body gently in the chair.

With its gradual curve, the seat shell provides excellent comfort.

Up to three chairs can be stacked flat. Seat back covers protect the seat surfaces from damage during stacking.

The design also takes ease of stacking and carrying into consideration.
