Karimoku New Standard is a Japanese based wood furniture manufacturer, featuring innovative, functional objects, made to suit the 21st century lifestyle designed to stand the test of time.
The range of space-saving dining furniture, created in collaboration with German Designer Christian Haas, will be unveiled at this year’s Salone del Mobile.
The Scout collection comprises a horizontal stackable dining chair and table with detachable legs, available in a variety of finishes, made from Japanese oak. The chairs themselves come in a variety of finishes including; moss green, pale pink or pain wood with a transparent matte finish to all pieces.
“The Scout chair is conceived as a compact, versatile seat with the comfort of an armchair,” states creative director David Glaettli in a recent interview.
Crafted via a computerised cutting system which carves each leg and horizontal bar and then finished and assembled by hand, these simple chairs consist of a curved seat and backrest, with a curious profile of upright front legs and angular rear legs.
The accompanying dining table is available in round, square or rectangular configuration with a natural finish. The Karimoku New Standard range of products are available exclusively in Australia through Stylecraft.
The Single Curve bar stool by Nendo is a refined adaption of Japanese minimalism cleverly fusing the traditional style of the Gebruder Thonet Vienna GmbH.
