Seattle, Washington, 2008. The Graypants design studio was founded by architects Jonathan Junker and Seth Grizzle (and joined later by close friend, Jon Gentry) as a way to get back to what they'd originally loved about architecture: design, drawing and making things by hand.
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.

PLEASE WAIT to be SEATED is a young Danish design company founded in 2014 by Thomas Ibsen. The idea was quite clear from the beginning, we wanted to build a great design brand, based on our passion for shapes, architecture, and legacy of the previous Danish masters.
