About Mogul Ski Chair

This chair is the Postalco philosophy applied to furniture. Designed for contemporary daily life, it also has a warm presence. The double curved back piece of this chair is like a cradle supporting the person seated. It is also a curved handle similar to the ‘handlebar’ found on the back of an ice sled.

Delivers in March 2019.



Built by Karimoku

Karimoku has over 75 years of experience with wood working and makes some of the most reliable furniture available. We are lucky to be able to work with them to realize our vision. Each chair is made with hand-selected wood and built to order entirely in their first class workshop.

Is it Comfortable?

We worked with the ‘touch and comfort specialist’ at Karimoku to refine the exact details of this chair. We were surprised to find out that he was previously a mogul ski athlete. The same meticulous attention to detail that a racer applies to his skis, he now applies to the touch and feel of the chairs he reviews. Through conversation, prototypes, and testing we decided on the exact shape, angle and cushioning. Pairing sophisticated geometry and luxurious materials lead to the Mogul Ski Chair's optimum feel.
Since each person is unique, we suggest visiting our Kyobashi shop to try it yourself.






Sustainable Wood

The Mogul Ski Chair is made with ecologically sourced oak and chestnut. We combined oak for strength and chestnut for lightness. Karimoku’s long history of furniture making means that they are able to know that their wood is responsibly sourced in Japan from managed forests.

Considerations for health

Furniture should never pose a health hazard, especially since we spend our everyday life together. Karimoku actively adopts the use of paints and materials that do not contain toxic substances, and has cleared the most stringent standards in Japan with regard to formaldehyde that causes the sick house syndrome.






Aniline Leather

This cowhide has an exceptionally natural and soft surface. Each skin varies in color and texture, and will develop a patina over time. It is more labor intensive to make leather this way but the depth of color and comfortable feeling it is worth it.


染料のみで着色しているため、一枚一枚、微妙に異なる色合いやシボのばらつきといった、革本来の表情と質感を楽しめます。植物タンニンとクロムでなめした牛革は、ナチュラルでソフトな手触り。 使い込むと、深みのある風合いが生まれます。


Kvadrat Textiles

Textile specialist Kvadrat in Denmark has been creating fabric since 1968. The fabrics Canvas 2 and Remix 2 combine six colors of yarn in every colorway, creating exceptional color richness. From a distance they have the calm feeling of a single color fabric, but as you get closer elegant color contrasts emerge. 90% wool, 10% nylon. Certified EU Ecolabel.




What is in our cushion?
For optimum comfort without unnecessary bulk, we shaped four layers of materials for the perfect cushion.
Filling includes cutting-edge technology 3-D mesh materials for an ideal lightweight, soft but springy combination. We used 3-D mesh for its breathability and ability to keep its shape even after much use. Cushions are wrapped in beautiful Japan-made leather or fabric by Kvadrat in Denmark for a luxurious surface. Cushion filling can be removed from a concealed zipper opening for cover cleaning.

About Karimoku

Karimoku, Japan’s leading manufacturer of wooden furniture, started as a small wood shop in Aichi Prefecture. Since then, Karimoku has focused on the pursuit of ‘high-tech and high-touch’ Japanese products.



Oak and Chestnut

As wood is a natural product, variations in color and pigmentation will occur. Wooden furniture will also change appearance over time as it is affected by the environment in which it is placed. Each piece of wood is unique. Wood color depends on where the tree grew. Within the wood grain variations of brown, gray, darker, and lighter sections naturally occur. Branches also affect the grain. Especially found in oak is an irregular grain pattern called in Japanese the ‘tora’. Natural knots, ‘tora’, grain, and color variations are considered ‘natural marks’ and are unique to each piece of wood. Where one piece of wood joins another the grain, texture and color may especially stand out. Since every natural variation is visible, only the best wood can be used. It is more difficult to make furniture this way, but we feel it is worth it.

Coating: there is a light water resistant polyurethane coating on the wood ideal for daily use. The natural color and grain of wood are intentionally not hidden. Compared with oil finishes it is a more durable surface protection. It helps reduce dirt gathering on the surface.

Aniline Leather

This leather breathes, giving exceptional sitting comfort. Over time the leather surface will soften, scratches will get worked in, and it will develop a patina unique to leather. This leather’s special finish intentionally does not hide the ‘natural marks’ inherent in leather: these include wrinkles, veins, insect bites, and scratches. These are the signs of a truly natural material. Leather colors will age with patina and grace, however they are also very susceptible to stains. As much as possible, do not place leather furniture in direct sunlight or close to heat sources such as radiators or wood-burning stoves.

Textile Cushions

The cushion is removed easily with no tools. It snaps into place with metal snaps that are invisible when the cushion is attached. (Yes, at Postalco we do like snaps!)

Canvas 2 by Kvadrat:
Comfortable, soft and breathable wool. 90% new wool, 10% nylon.

Remix 2 by Kvadrat:
Inspired by the feeling of thin and strong wool suiting fabric. 90% wool, 10% nylon.
