KARIMOKU COMMONS POP UP SHOWROOM AT GALLERY ASSAB ONE
In a joint exhibition at the art space and former printing factory Gallery Assab One, Karimoku Furniture will be showcasing four of its premium furniture brands. Curated by Norm Architects, the exhibition is conceptualized like a journey through Japanese culture, with a unique interior for the industrial space. A simulation of Karimoku Furniture’s own concept space and showroom in Tokyo, Karimoku Commons Tokyo, visitors to the exhibition at Assab One in Milan will be met by a traditional, large-scale “noren” curtain, a first indication of the authentic Japanese experience they will make inside. Framed and structured by washi paper screens and with a central illuminated pillar from the same material, the exhibition displays the furniture pieces in various settings and sceneries divided by brand. Highlighting the craftsmanship and design of the items, the settings are meant to invite visitors to interact with the furniture – experiencing the unique quality that Karimoku Furniture is so renowned for.
KARIMOKU AT SALONE DEL MOBILE
On 161 square meters, the lifestyle brand Karimoku will be showcased in an apartment style setting at Salone del Mobile. Designed by Keiji Ashizawa, the exhibition space will be divided into interlocking rooms with individual and inspiring settings for living, working, and dining.
