Part of the Aizome series for the Japanese brand, Ariake, the Aizome Sideboard acts as a canvas for traditional Japanese colors and finishes. The bold piece is covered in a wash of two shades of Japanese indigo, or Aizome, and takes its name from the distinct hue. The saturated color palette is offset by unique, quiet details that were inspired by time spent in the small town of Morodomi, Japan, where the piece is produced. The recessed surface provides a lip for opening the drawers below and the concealed red handles echo a sentiment of mystery and subtlety often present in Japanese life and aesthetics: the significant things are not always immediately visible.
