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.
A hybrid between the Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics emerged when working on the dining chair, using existing parts found in the factories of Karimoku. The result is a classic, minimal piece of furniture with a warm look.
