Did exhibition visitors interact with the furniture pieces the way you had hoped they would?
We hoped people would find a sanctuary in the space, and I think we succeeded! Some would sit down with a book and enjoy an unhurried moment away from their hectic design week agenda.
What are the most interesting things you learned so far from your visits to Karimoku production facilities in Japan?
It’s truly reassuring to witness a massive manufacturer like Karimoku care so greatly for their work and craft. As a family-run business, they honor their history and uphold a shared goal of creating high quality, sustainable furniture pieces that last.
