Designed by Isamu Kenmochi in 1961, the Kashiwado chair was actually created for a famous sumo wrestler from that time, named Kashiwado.  The chair is truly a work of art.  Craftsmen first cut out several blocks of the bottom roots of a Japanese Cedar tree (Sugi) and then carefully select the best wood with the most tree rings.  The blocks are then hand carved and layered on top of each other then polished and coated.
