The Loop desk designed by Kazuhide Takahama is a legendary, impeccable, unambiguous product combining design and functionality, perfect for furnishing corporate offices. Its shape is enhanced by the opulent matte or mirrored lacquer finish and the precise 45° joints between the top and sides. The central part of the top is clad in leather to heighten its practicality and protect the lacquered structure.
Kazuhide Takahama was born in Kyushu, Japan in 1930 and after completing his studies in Architecture in Tokyo, started working in Kazuo Fuioka's studio. In 1957, he came to Italy to visit the Triennale in Milan where he met Dino Gavina with whom he was to work for many years. By 1963 he moved to Bologna and came into contact with the most active Italian designers of the time. He developed his own well-defined stylistic lexis in a climate of profuse cultural exchanges.
His furniture and lighting designs often feature clean lines and formal restraint. In his works, signs from the oriental culture in which he was trained overlap with features of the Western culture in which he was immersed. He has produced designs for Cassina, Knoll, Gavina, and B&B Italia.
