Playing with the balance between light and heavy elements, the dining table is dimensioned like the branches of a tree — thus making it appear paper-thin from some angles and more robust where it needs to be.
Like with the architectural works of the studio, Norm have explored the negative space within the furniture pieces, emphasising the materials and details by highlighting the places where the light can shine through. The Kinuta Collection has its native setting in two of the 36 Kinuta Terrace apartments located in the Kinuta ward of the Setagaya district in Tokyo.
Kinuta Terrace was originally built in the 1980s with an integrated courtyard, giving residents the advantages of a single-family home. The Keiji Ashizawa Design team has renovated the interiors in collaboration with Norm Architects, creating, amongst a series of interior elements, 12 tailormade furniture pieces that make up the first collection of Karimoku Case Study, all drawing on the natural references of the connected courtyard in an attempt to invite in nature as much as possible — in their design language as well as through their material compositions.
