Object of Desire: Furniture by ‘Architect Meets Karimoku,’ a Collaboration with Norm Architects

March 28, 2019

Spotted (and admired): a small collection of furniture from Japan-based architecture firm Karimoku in collaboration with Copenhagen-based Norm Architects. The four pieces are made of  hinoki cypress, and are inspired by traditional Japanese and Scandinavian tradition. Here’s a look:
