Japanese office furniture brand Okamura is now sold at multi-label retailer W. Atelier.

The 71-year-old brand, which also kits out aircraft and cars from Nissan, has received prestigious accolades over the years, including the Red Dot Award and Good Design Award.

W. Atelier carries all 15 models of Okamura’s work chair range. These ergonomic chairs have backrests that can withstand repeated back-tilting and strong bases that can last through frequent wheeling.

Only two chairs – the Contessa and the Plimode models – are on display at the store. The rest can be viewed and ordered from an in-store catalogue. All the chairs are customisable.

Okamura describes the Plimode as “an innovation that provides a sensation akin to donning a well-tailored suit”. The customisable chair comes in four patterns and 33 colours. Prices start at $1,349.
