MAS

MAS is not a conifer wood furniture collection, but a collection that considers how conifer wood can be used for furniture.

Coniferous trees are relatively softer and lighter than broad-leaved trees. Furniture making requires robustness, so these trees are generally considered unsuitable for furniture material. However, MAS over comes this barrier with Karimoku’s technology and structure. MAS, which skillfully draws out the features of the material, is the fruits of the blessings of Japanese forests and modern creativity.⁠

Hammock Chair

If I express the character of the knitted fabric with one word is “Friendly”. Like a knit sweater, gently wraps the body provide you the friendliness, and the elasticity that follows the curve of the body posture.
Since it is a knit fabric that feels familiar not only in appearance but also in function, I think that it is possible to make a difference from other fabrics, by designing for contact with the body rather than a design that stands alone. Wooden parts made by Shigeto Minaki |Upholstering by Yuta Kuwabara .

Room Shoes, Slippers

Leather slippers and room shoes produced by Ninomiya Goro Shoten, a manufacturer of leather bags and accessories, as part of the Sumida Contemporary project. They were designed with the intent of creating indoor footwear that is well-made, long-lasting, and will age well – in contrast with many commonly available slippers.

December chair

A chair and ottoman formed from linen or leather seats given structure by ash or oak frames. Designed with Jasper Morrison and produced by Nikari in Fiskars, Finland. They were designed in 2012 when Nikari launched a piece of furniture each month for a year, and in 2016 were followed by a lounge variant with arms. While initially intended to be a chair that could be assembled at home, it is now available pre-assembled.
