The blog Spoon & Tamago has put together a quick primer and "Who's Who" guide to thirteen of the 20th Century's Japanese designers. This is an easy way to match names and faces with some of their most popular furniture and industrial designs...

The designs pictured above (from left to right): Spoke Chair by Kappei Toyoguchi, Solid Stool by Watanabe Riki, Persimmon Chair by Daisaku Cho, Butterfly Stool by Sori Yanagi, and the Kashiwado Chair by Isamu Kenmochi. See the designers pictures and more of their designs (and eight more respected Japanese designers) at Japanese Designers 101. Via: Spoon & Tamago and notcot.org.
