Kinuta Lounge Chair N-LC01

$2,675 - $2,915



Description

A thoughtful hybrid, Karimoku's lounger combines the wide armrest of its sister sofa with the sleek look of the collection's dining chair. Named for Tokyo’s ‘80s-era Kinuta Terrace apartments with its integrated courtyard, the furniture series originated along with the building's renovation by the Keiji Ashizawa design team along with Copenhagen’s Norm Architects. Also carrying references to the midcentury Scandinavian style, Karimoku’s lounge chair reflects a standard of uncompromising production and remarkable attention to detail.

Brand

Karimoku

Each collection of Karimoku's premium wood furniture originates with a specific architectural project and represents a collaboration between the legacy Japanese brand and leading practitioners such as Britain's Norman Foster, Copenhagen's Norm Architects and Tokyo's Keiji Ashizawa. With starting points that include furnishing select restaurants, retail spaces and private residences, the collaborating designers have an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the Japanese company’s extensive heritage and unparalleled manufacturing expertise.

Initially produced as bespoke one-offs, the furniture pieces that were originally developed in a dialogue with a specific architectural setting thus have become a range of standout options offered for wider distribution, finding a place in a host of environments. Imbued with coherent style, they exhibit a richness of the materials, mindful production methods and timeless minimalist appeal as Karimoku ushers in the icons of tomorrow.

Designer

Norm Architects

“Norms aren’t boring,” Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects says, reflecting on the name of his Copenhagen-based design studio, formed with fellow architect Kasper Rønn. “On the contrary, the firm wants to make use of all that centuries-old wisdom that we now know as design.” Norm encompasses furniture, dinner service, kitchenware and lighting fixtures as well as architecture projects with third partner Linda Korndal.

“There’s something in our design culture that’s born out of our connection to the Nordic climate, to the crafts and the natural materials that surround us, and that 'something' makes us stand out,” Jonas says. Norm Architects has garnered numerous prestigious awards such as Red Dot, IF Design Award and Design Plus Award. Jonas focuses on aesthetics and Kasper concentrates on technology but the lines are often blurred on any offering, says Jonas. “You should be able to look at it in 10, 20 years’ time and still find it useful and beautiful.”
