museum cabinet for private collection

Released in 2015 as a cabinet that beautifully showcases pieces like collection cases in museums, museum cabinet for private collection has become a symbolic product of our craftsmanship.

The frame composing the body incorporates traditional Japanese assembly methods, emphasizing strength and design. We gave the outer surface of the frame a gentle bulge that replaces the hard expression common to cabinets with a soft impression. Classic beading decoration lends a Japanese and Oriental air.

With the fittings of Japanese furniture and houses in mind, we equipped this cabinet with Japanese-style sliding doors, using the old-fashioned method of carving grooves at the top and bottom of the door frame without the use of rails or other metal parts.

In Japan, where wooden architecture over a millennium old still stands, techniques have matured in line with local fea- tures and climate, and outstanding woodworking technolo- gies have been handed down to the present. We constructed this cabinet using only Japanese woodworking techniques, as if making a small building.
