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 slight but precise spacing between each wooden element in this coffee table is inspired by Japanese temples, shrines and traditional architecture, allowing the light to travel through beautifully. The stone top carries references to the minimalist designs of famous Danish designer Poul Kjærholm.
