Karimoku is not an individual artist but rather a well-known Japanese furniture company. Founded in 1940, Karimoku specializes in manufacturing high-quality wooden furniture. The company uses traditional Japanese woodworking techniques combined with modern design concepts to create products that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Karimoku's products are known for their durability, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. They often collaborate with both local and international designers to create unique furniture pieces that cater to a diverse range of tastes and preferences. Some of their popular collaborations include partnerships with designers such as Naoto Fukasawa, Oki Sato (Nendo), and Tokujin Yoshioka.
In addition to traditional furniture, Karimoku has also ventured into more niche markets, such as the Karimoku60 line, which offers a range of mid-century modern furniture designs, and the Karimoku New Standard (KNS) line, which focuses on innovative contemporary designs made from sustainable hardwoods.
