Kinuta Terrace | N-SS01

Shelving from Karimoku Case, Designed by Norm Architects

Product description

CASE STUDY : Kinuta Terrace
SIZE : W1427, D420, H1692, 46 kg

Inspired by the umbrella- and shoe racks by the entrance of Japanese temples and Shrines, similar construction techniques were used to create the shelving system with inherent functionalities, such as removable shelves and bookends that aren’t visible at first sight. The shelving system is a customizable piece of furniture in solid wood that serves the needs of its owner in an understated way.


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 , 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.
