Products made today in Tendo ―  for the next generation to treasure


Tendo City is right in the middle of Yamagata Prefecture in the Tohoku area of Japan.


Tendo Mokko was established in 1940 in Tendo, which has long been known as a woodworking town famous for the Japanese chess pieces it produced. Yamagata artisans have always had a mentality that combined curiosity, technique and the patience of the people of the North. In 1940, techniques to use molded plywood were still new in Japan,and it opened up a new field of furniture making in the country.


We were one of the first companies in Japan to use formed plywood to mass-produce good-quality furniture. Today Tendo furniture is still durable and easy to use, but we have expanded to collaborate with top Japanese architects and designers to create complicated curved lines impossible with natural wood.


When we at Tendo consider excellence in furniture, we imagine family assets original owners can hand down to the next generation.
