Introducing Karimoku Case Study: a contemporary lifestyle brand based in Japan and exhibited for the first time in an apartment setting at the Kinfolk Gallery.
3daysofdesign 2019 marks the launch of new lifestyle brand Karimoku Case Study, developed by Japan’s largest wooden furniture manufacturer, Karimoku, in collaboration with architecture and design studios Norm Architects and Keiji Ashizawa Design. To mark the launch, an exhibition hosted by The Kinfolk Gallery will showcase the works of local creatives in a setting that has been thoughtfully curated to give visitors the impression of being in a contemporary apartment, drawing on Japanese and Danish design aesthetics, quality craftsmanship and organic shapes.
Located right above Copenhagen’s busiest street, Strøget, the apartment exhibition is a tactile sanctuary, composed of natural materials, earthy tones and references found between the artworks of the co-exhibitors and the furniture pieces. Inspired by the temples, shrines and gardens of Japan, the exhibition and collection embody a sense of calm; a soft, warm and minimal space composed of materials, designs and aesthetics that all elevate one another, in the same way the design traditions of Japan and Denmark unite and promote each other through mutual admiration and shared values.
