[Tables and Chairs]
These tables can be connected by fitting in each other’s curves, and they can also be folded for storage.Two types of chairs were developed from the L-unit series and paper tubes. Both types are stackable.

[Bench]
This bench for Oita Prefectural Art Museum (OPAM) was designed using bamboo that originated from Oita. The legs and base are made with combinations of laminated bamboo L-angles with a sheet of tatami laid on top.

[Umbrella Stand – Hommage to Shiro Kuramata]
Even with the best designed art museums, the clutter of umbrella stands is perplexing, but in Kuramata’s umbrella stand design, a simle floating ring is supported by a single stick mimicking the end of an umbrella neck. In homage to Kuramata, a perforated transparent acrylic board supported by umbrellas becomes the stand itself. It looks natural, even on weekdays where it looks like umbrellas have just been left.
