Daiwa House furniture
Japan

Daiwa House, one of Japan’s largest house builders, invited us to develop a range of domestic furniture targeted at the owners of their high-end range called Eddi's House.

We thought the interior of these houses were cold and plasticky but the open plan geometry worked well. Therefore, our goal was simple; to reflect the geometry of the house while injecting warmth through materials and finishes. We used ‘foamed’ aluminium and Panelite resin sheets with coloured metal legs and details, combined with walnut veneer on a very thin timber structure.

The result is a subtle and exciting combination of colour, materials and finishes reflecting the craft and technology of Japan with the simple geometric modernity of Eddi's House.
