Custom Chairs by Kondo Masaki (近藤正樹) at Y's Arts (Room-508) - (2011/04)

This exhibition (2011/04/25-30) of Custom Chairs by Kondo Masaki (近藤正樹) at Y's Arts (Room-508) consisted of a set of very interesting and unique chairs.  The one I liked the best was the cobra chair, made of cherry wood (upper of two photos below).  When I sat in it, it felt comfortable, provided good lower back support, and gave me a strange sense of power - I immediately found myself wanting the chair to use with my work desk!  この展示会は、凄く面白く、素晴らしい椅子です! とっくに気に入ったのは、コブラ椅子です! 欲しいです!

This video clip shows the artist explaining some details about the construction of the Cobra Chair:

I met the artist and some of his friends at the exhibition, and they told me they are from Shizuoka.  The following are a couple of links for pages (in Japanese) associated with them:
