Karimoku New Standard
We are Karimoku, manufacturer of wood furniture from central Japan with history of more than 70 years.
Our tradition derives of a deep understanding of carpentry craftsmanship combined with cutting-edge technologies to build furniture of the highest possible quality.
Collaborating with some of the most promising international design talents, we launched KARIMOKU NEW STANDARD in 2009, a growing collection of innovative, joyful and functional objects that suit the ways of urban living in the 21st century.
Aiming to preserve and revitalize Japanese forests and resume a balance with local forest industry, our products are made using sustainable sourced Japanese hardwoods,such as maple, chestnut and oak-low-diameter trees that are often discarded or ending up as paper pulp.
KARIMOKU NEW STANDARD pieces are made to bring lasting joy, true to the credo that a piece of furniture should last at least as long as the tree it was made from.
In 1996, Carine Jannin who was then just twenty four years old, decided to create her own publishing house specialized in the design of objects. Her singular and strategic choices, free from all archetypes, allot a central position to the independence of creation. Together with Rachel and Benoît Convers, the established designers of the label, they combine a family trio, precursors in author design. Based on audacious concepts such as the “ made in France ” and objects with dual interpretations, this publishing house blossoms independently and cultivates its differences on the fringe of insidious standardization. The Ibride creations can be recognized at a glance: their references to the animal kingdom, their destructured archetypal shapes, and the graphic stamp of their museum like style, make up their territory of distinction.
