Beyond the chair with Takara Belmont

Natasha Takara Belmont

When it comes to aesthetics, Takara Belmont has perfected the art of timeless style. Many of their chair and equipment designs have spanned decades to remain relevant in the ever-changing world of interior design.

The history

The company, which was formed in Japan in 1921, has built on the success of their large portfolio. The most popular hairdressing chair, the Adria II, was created in 1971 and went on to be a huge success. This led the company to expand the range and build on their strengths. It then went on to design the RS Adria II shampoo system and the Adria II backwash. The company’s first barber chair, no.130, launched in 1940 and instantly became a must-have for stylists. The success of no.130 gave Takara a chance to cement their spot cementing in the design industry.
