twentytwentyone present Karimoku New Standard
Karimoku was established as a woodworking shop in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture in 1940. The Karimoku Group has since grown to embrace wood processing, surface treatments and colour technologies.
Karimoku New Standard was conceived in 2009 under the creative direction of Teruhiro Yanagihara. Using generations of furniture-making skills, progressive technologies and creative input from an international group of designers, the range has grown to offer a very distinct identity, produced to exacting qualities.
Karimoku New Standard endorses the sustainable use of forest resources and products are predominantly made of solid Japanese hardwoods such as maple, chestnut and oak. Designs make use of timber from small-diameter trees that generally remain underused, often becoming wood chips for paper pulp. A deep understanding of experienced craftsmanship, together with cutting-edge technologies produces furniture that meets the highest standard.
The designers working for Karimoku New Standard are an international cross-section fusing European and Japanese sensibilities.
Since its origin, Karimoku New Standard has manufactured nearly 20 products, all of which are versatile, functional products that carry the quiet beauty of everyday life.
