With clean lines, a crisp design language and a soft and comfortable inner, the Minatomirai Side Chair mimics the architecture of the Blue Bottle Coffee shop. With its low backrest and small footprint, it’s not really a dining chair, neither a stool – but combines the best of the two and therefore serves the real needs of the cafe.

The Minatomirai Cafe Collection has its native setting in Blue Bottle Coffee Minatomirai Cafe located in the Minatomirai in Yokohama, Japan. Adjacent to the park, the Minatomirai Cafe is designed as a glass-walled open space, with soft and welcoming curves in combination with natural wooden surfaces.
Under the direction of one of brand initiator Keiji Ashizawa as lead architect and multidisciplinary Danish design studio Norm Architects, the tailor-made furniture for the cafe have been realised as second collection of Karimoku Case Study.
