Karimoku Crafts Blue Bottle Coffee Chairs Designed by Keiji Ashizawa

Dining chairs and bar stools designed by Keiji Ashizawa and currently in use at Blue Bottle Coffee Shibuya are now available for purchase.

The products are labeled “CASE STUDY 02.1” and are produced by leading Japanese wooden furniture manufacturer Karimoku. The light oak A-DC01 dining chair was designed especially for the café taking into consideration compatibility with the modern interior of the store and the outside park surroundings. Its large seating surface and curved backrest wrap the entire body in a firm and comfortable hold. The chairs can be stacked, allowing for efficient storage and transport. The counter chair A-BS01  is similarly themed and adopts a “floating design” that elevates the seat surface slightly to make it appear as if it’s levitating. Brass is used on the footrest to maximize durability.

The “CASE STUDY 02.1” collection is currently on sale on the Karimoku website. The A-DC01 dining chair and A-BS01 counter chair are priced at ¥84,370 and ¥69,300 JPY (approximately $767 and $630 USD) respectively. The products will also be exhibited at the “Soil and Resymbiosis Exhibition” presented by Oiya at the Karimoku Commons in Tokyo starting August 27 and lasting until the end of September. Take a look below for more details.
