What’s special about Japanese designers – I think that no one knows better how to make eye-catching, functional and ergonomic furniture. Japanese company Karimoku launched the New Standard Collection, which owns such properties. The line of furniture is made from hardwood harvested from low-diameter trees, an underutilized set of trees that are most often used for wasteful paper pulp. Working with this type of hardwood calls for an inventive design strategy: designers at Karimoku use Japanese joinery to refit the wood into new forms, and they aren’t shy when it comes to washes of pastel color. Tables, dressers, drawers and shelves to choose from – enjoy the variety of pretty furniture pieces!
