Designed by Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons in 1988. 

Rei Kawakubo’s furniture designs were first made in 1984 “to create a  complete environmental setting for [her] clothes” in the Comme des  Garçons stores. Her first designs were chairs made of steel and granite,  made as unique examples or in limited quantities. A small number of  collections were created up until 1990, when a now very rare catalog of  her furniture designs was released. Around 1987, when the present lot  was produced, Kawakubo had opened up a short-lived Comme des Garçons  furniture store in Paris that was later made into the brand’s perfume  store.
