About Nissin Mokkou

Nissin Mokkou was founded in 1946 in Hida Takayama, Gifu Prefecture. Since their establishment, their design principle has prioritised our customers’ needs. In contrast, they designed and crafted our furniture, which led them to become one of the most symbolic Hida furniture due to its adaptability and diversity. The roots of their design style trace back to their visit to Scandinavia in 1963. They combined the essence of Scandinavian design with traditional Japanese craftsmanship from Hida and developed a series of products that are practical, accessible, and durable. Their core value is to deliver high-quality, modern, and simple furniture to allow our users to allocate it in various living spaces. Their success is attributed to our craftmanship, vision, and excellent use of materials. To continue this legacy, we name ourselves “Nissin”, referenced from an old Japanese phrase “Nissin Geppo,” meaning progressing consistently, to remind them not to stagnate but to improve and be innovative at all times.
