Graphic Accent for Interior Spaces This polygonal table with barrel-like leg explores craft traditions and the characteristics of thinned wood. Transparent colours and graphic patterns printed on the tabletop represent contemporary design superimposed on traditional craft techniques.
This series of side tables comes in four types using three different sizes; each with their own combination of colours, height and diameter. Details that Highlight Craft Techniques Inspired by the traditional Japanese wood joint technique yatoi-sanetsugi, the leg of this table is made of individual laths that are connected at intricate angles to form a round tapered base.
Except for the all-pink table, the tables in this series come with coloured textile inlays that accentuate the barrel-like leg. Like all Karimoku New Standard items, COLOUR WOOD is finished to the highest standards. Even the underside of the tabletop has not been overlooked.
