To express the fineness of Japanese handiwork through furniture, we began by having another look at furniture-making in the good old days that bring back memories. We made a cabinet with many drawers by asking ourselves an essential question of how such furniture should look and how functional it should be.
The detachable drawers are large enough to store A3-sized paper, shirts, books, and other large items. Without using sliding rails or other modern functional hardware, we limited ourselves to using analogue structures. Users can continue to enjoy the products for a long time by repairing them after several decades even when they are slightly broken. This large cabinet has 40 large A3-sized drawers. It is up to the user how to use them. Users can freely store documents, collections, records, photographs, contract papers, albums, and other valuable items. It is our pleasure to create products while visualizing how our furniture will be used in daily life and work.
