This re-edition produced was sold in 2019 during a “Black Market” pop-up for Comme des Garçons in Omotesando, Tokyo. It was sold out a few days after the release.
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.
