“十” -10 Years of Ishinomaki Laboratory
This event has ended.
Karimoku Commons Tokyo announces plans for their next exhibition in the 1F gallery space. Commemorating 10 years since their founding, furniture brand Ishinomaki Laboratoryʼs ‘“十” - 10 Years of Ishinomaki Laboratory’ will be held from June 14 - August 6, 2021.
10 years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake. Ishinomaki Laboratory was initially founded as a public workshop in June 2011 for the residents of disaster-stricken Ishinomaki city and has continued to this day to utilize design and craftsmanship to bolster recovery and revitalization efforts in the region. After relocating several times, the brand now operates out of a renovated, former wakame seaweed factory.
The last 10 years have seen many developments, such as Ishinomaki Laboratory’s numerous collaborations with international and Japanese designers alike. Additionally, as part of their Made in Local initiative, projects have been launched in the UK, USA, China, and other countries. Domestically in Japan, the brand collaborated with Karimoku Furniture Inc. to launch the Ishinomaki Laboratory by Karimoku collection in 2019.
from June 14, 2021 to August 06, 2021
