Solid oak, volcanic sand plaster, bamboo rattan

Various sizes

The Tokyo Tribal collection features 25 items including stools, chairs, tables, and shelves. To fit the modern urban living environment, the designs have been made simple and the sizes relatively compact.

The collection uses solid oak for the main frames and volcanic sand plaster for the top board finishes, in combination with bamboo rattan hand-woven by local artisans in the Philippines.

The concept of ‘furniture’ and ‘miscellaneous interior goods’ are combined, in contrast to more conventional concepts of interior design that clearly place greater importance on the former. In allowing for these various products and materials to converge and function together, the conceptual aim is to create a sense of a small and tightly-knit ‘tribe’, greater and better than the sum of its parts.
