With the sofa, Keiji Ashizawa played with the same structure used for the Kinuta table, arriving at a sofa that embodies sculptural, yet laid-back elements. The low height enhances the size of the space. Simple, yet multi-functional, the armrest can be used as a pillow, making it a daybed.

The Kinuta Collection has its native setting in two of the 36 Kinuta Terrace apartments located in the Kinuta ward of the Setagaya district in Tokyo. Kinuta Terrace was originally built in the 1980s with an integrated courtyard, giving residents the advantages of a single-family home.
The Keiji Ashizawa Design team has renovated the interiors in collaboration with Norm Architects, creating, amongst a series of interior elements, 12 tailormade furniture pieces that make up the first collection of Karimoku Case Study, all drawing on the natural references of the connected courtyard in an attempt to invite in nature as much as possible — in their design language as well as through their material compositions.
