A Classic Revived

By Japanese design master, Riki Watanabe

Riki Watanabe was one of the leading people of the design unit "Q Designers" established in 1956 in Japan. In 1976, they designed a main bar "Chambre" in Shinbashi Daiich Hotel in Tokyo and for its interior, they used copper which was Watanabe’s most liked material for the wall, and also for the mobile hanging in the space.

Today's revived Chambre Mobile is constructed by combining copper plates and pure teak and creates a chic atmosphere through its combination of the solid feeling of materials and lightness of the form. 

There is a "Riki" signature engraved on the bottom piece.

As the Chambre Mobiles are made of natural wood, there are individual differences in the grain pattern. As it is also made of copper, there are and will be color change by oxidation. Please enjoy its changes as a nature of its natural materials.

Available in three or four pieces, the brushed copper and teak elements rotate along a thin cable.
