KOBO ST-DESK

幅=1400mm
奥行き=750mm
高さ=730mm

一見とても華奢にみえますが、安定感があります。すっきりとしたデザインで木とスチールの相性がよく、様々な空間にもマッチします。天板に使われているリノリウム材は手に馴染む感触で手の指紋が付きにくく、近年再び注目されている素材です。文字を書く感触は柔らかく滑らかに書くことができます。脚先にはオーク材使用し、すっきりしたデザインながらも木の暖かさも感じるテーブルです。天板にはリノリウムを貼っています。リノリウムは亜麻仁油、木粉、コルク粉、石灰岩から作られた、天然素材のマットです。抗菌性があり、タバコのもみ消しをしても溶けることのない、汚れに強く大変丈夫な素材です。

Design : Keiji Ashizawa
(b. 1973) lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. After graduating from Yokohama University School of Architecture in 1995, Ashizawa spent the first ten years of his career working as both an architect and steel fabricator. The unique skills and experience gained throughout these early years, including a valued understanding of metals, continue to influence his approach to design.Keiji Ashizawa presents work of ‘honest’ design – simple yet refined, thoughtful and of a light manner – derived naturally through the process of attempting to maximise the potential of each material and its function. He excels in applying these ideas to projects of various scale, from furniture and lighting design to architecture and exhibition design.His furniture and lighting have been exhibited internationally since 2001.In 2011, Ashizawa was awarded a ‘Special Award’ by the Japan Institute of Design for his principal participation in the inception of Ishinomaki Laboratory – a DIY furniture workshop established in Ishinomaki city, Japan, after it was devastated by the tsunami triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
