Wooden Modular Furniture Inspired by Japanese Toys by Kengo Kuma
The great Japanese designer-Kengo Kuma-has come up with his latest jobs collaborated with East Japan Project called The Chidori Furniture. These furniture strongly inspired by traditional Japanese toys Chidori-which are made from simple wooden components with unique joints (like a puzzle). Each pieces made by skilled carpenters in the Tohoku region.
Here you can see the simplicity of the collection. Twelve wooden sticks slot together without glue to form the units, which combine to make shelving or tables. The six-sided units can be connected to one another from any edge.
Chidori Furniture is a flexible system developed from the joint system of Chidori. Chidori, the name of an old Japanese toy from Hida Takayama, a small town in Japan, is originally an assembly of wood sticks with unique joints. Transformed from the traditional system of Chidori, 1 unit of Chidori Furniture consists of 12 timber sticks with different junction details. Each modular unit of Chidori Furniture can be connected to from all 6 sides making numerous combinations possible. Merely by twisting the sticks, without any nails or metal fittings, it shows a myriad of possibilities to become anything from a table to a shelf.
