With its construction being based on the many facades and doors that you find in shrines, temples and traditional architecture all over Japan, the various wooden parts of the sofa table are intentionally spaced and levelled with high precision, making the furniture piece light in its appearance. The spacing between each element lets the light travel through to make for an organic, living piece of furniture. The stone top carries references to the minimalist designs by famous, Danish designer Poul Kjærholm.
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.
