Karimoku’s factories make every effort to use materials efficiently without waste, but inevitably offcuts and other residual wood output are still produced during the manufacturing process. Along with various hardwoods that are undervalued and underutilized and wood marked with insect-eaten holes or scratches from birds such as woodpeckers, it was thought that with Ishinomaki Laboratory’s designs, such wood that otherwise would be considered unsuitable in furniture making might be utilized and treasured.Making use of these previously disregarded woods species, this material-based emphasis results in the production of long-loved, high-quality pieces. Through stimulating forestry’s economic cycle and rebuilding the symbiotic relationship between people and forests, Ishinomaki Laboratory by Karimoku strives to realize a sustainable, flourishing society.
