"Simone" sofa designed by Kazuhide Takahama and Dino Gavina for Studio Simon in the 1970s. Original upholstery in emerald green velvet and structure in polyester lacquered wood, glossy black. Takahama, born in 1930, studied architecture in Tokyo and after graduation joined Kazuo Fujioka's studio. In 1957 he came to Italy to supervise the architectural design of the pavilion with which Japan participated for the first time in the 11th Milan Triennale, where he met the designer and entrepreneur Dino Gavina (1922-2007) with whom he began a lifelong professional collaboration. As a result, he moved to Bologna in 1964 and went to work as a furniture and lamp designer in the San Lazzaro factory. Simon was born in 1968 from the meeting of Dino Gavina and Maria Simoncini with some of the greatest exponents of architecture and modern art. In this entrepreneurial adventure, all the cultural experiences and manufacturing testimonies converged, resulting in a cult collection for design lovers. Today, these furnishing objects, synonymous with an industrial activity that has been able to become a vehicle for cultural promotion, represent classics, because they are repositories of timeless values to inspire and draw on.
