Karimoku has been manufacturing wood furniture in Aichi Prefecture in central Japan for 70 years. The company launched Karimoku New Standard in 2009.
Born out of a collaboration with some of the most promising international design talents, the collection features innovative, joyful, and functional objects, made to suit the ways of living in the 21st century.
The collection is essentially made of solid Japanese hardwoods such as maple, chestnut and oak.
In an attempt to preserve and revitalize Japanese forests and resume a balance with the local industry, the hardwood used is gained from low-diameter trees that have previously remained significantly underused, ending up mostly as wood chips for paper pulp.
Karimoku’s tradition derives from a deep understanding of craftsmanship, bound together with innovative technologies to build furniture that meets the highest requirements of quality and sustainability.
