Required Reading: Nest by Truck

March 6, 2013

If you’re like us, a slavish fan of Truck Furniture (and the owner’s entire approach to design), you might be interested in their latest book, “Truck Nest.”

Osaka-based Truck, a collaborative venture from couple Tokuhiko Kise and Hiromi Karatsu recently released Truck Nest: Under the Tree, (the fourth book in the Truck Works series). In this latest volume, the couple captures the past nine years of their lives as home, store, workshop, and cafe owners. Tragically, the book is not available in the US. Contact Truck directly for distributors.
