Norm Architects have designed a series of furniture for an interior renovation project in Tokyo. The furniture is designed in collaboration with Japan’s largest wooden furniture manufacturer, Karimoku, with Keiji Ashizawa Design and Torafu Architects having also participated in the workshops, designing furniture for specific spaces, including a private home and office space.
The Hinoki wood sofa boasts clear references to traditional Japanese architecture methods as well as democratic Danish furniture from the 50’s. All elements are on display, with the armrest continuing along the backrest of the sofa and thereby creating a shelf-like element, increasing functionality and making it suitable for a small home.
