Kura (NEW)

Stilted buildings, represented by Todai-ji Temple and Shōsōin Shoso Repository, have protected many art pieces from Japan’s warm and humid climate and pests. We learned from our predecessors’ knowledge and thought about whether we could use that style to make furniture.

For KURA, we removed the side plates that support the cabinet and imitated the architectural style’s pillar system.

We designed it so that light enters through the four sides, the silhouettes of the objects can be seen through the lattice door, and the objects can be enjoyed with the lattice door as a backdrop.
