Product description

The Saiba Side Chair pairs a cushioned, fully upholstered bucket seat with striking wood legs. It reads as a singular, familiar form, at home wherever elegant guest seating is needed. After a closer look, the impeccable tailoring and gentle curves of the side chair reveal the attention to detail that’s become a signature of designer Naoto Fukasawa’s Saiba family of seating and tables, elevating the design beyond expectations.

Product family


With its thoughtfully sculpted silhouette and sophisticated simplicity of form, the Saiba Chair subtly elevates the atmosphere around it while providing an effortless sense of comfort to the person sitting in it. As the first chair designed by Tokyo-based Naoto Fukasawa for a North American manufacturer, the Saiba chair exemplifies the designer’s “supernormal” philosophy—instantly familiar (normal), and yet better than what’s come before (super). The result is executive and lounge seating that is intuitively beautiful and useful.

Saiba is available in a mid- or high-back, and as a fixed-height lounge chair with four-star base and glides or an adjustable-height executive chair with five-star base and casters. Impeccable tailoring, a sophisticated palette of textiles, and a polished or black base contribute to its timeless elegance.
