Located in the centre of the Takayama furniture-making district, Nissin has been designing and producing furniture for over 60 years. From the choice of sustainable wood to the final hand finishing Nissin controls every aspect of the manufacturing process, enabling them to confidently give each and every one of their products a 10-year guarantee of quality.
Nissin believe that simplicity is key when combining contemporary design with outstanding craftsmanship and that the beauty comes not only from function, but also from the materials and skill that go into making a piece.
Partly inspired by the leaves of the grand ginkgo tree in Hida Takayama that is over 1,200 years old, the Ginkgo Collection features a distinctive 3-sided shape that forms products for dining, living and working. Not only does the comfortable, ergonomic three-legged chair use less material, the design also allows several chairs to fit neatly around a table making it ideal for small restaurants and compact homes. The collection takes a sustainable approach to furniture construction, utilising production offcuts of premium oak that provide an individual and attractive pattern unique to each piece.
