The free and daring designer and fashion maker Kenzo Takada, the "Parisian" among Japanese designers, created an extraordinary collection of fabrics and ceramics for Roche Bobois. In order to "clothe" the Mah Jong sofa, he was inspired by historical kimonos from the No Theater, reinterpreted motifs and colors and created 3 enchanting and sophisticated harmonies, which symbolize the three times of the day: Asa (morning), Hiru (noon), Yoru (evening).
