Designed with Norm Architects
Koku is a new occasional table range, created in collaboration with Danish design agency, Norm Architects, and inspired by revered American-Japanese craftsman, architect and designer, George Nakashima. Koku is named after the island of Shikoku, the site of Nakashima’s former workshops and the setting for an influential research trip for Norm Architects.
The table range has been developed in response to Nakashima’s sculptural and material-led approach to crafting objects, collecting characterful slabs of wood and shaping his finds into new uses through sensitive carpentry methods. Featuring a striking combination of solid wood and metal tubes, Koku is a play on balance: light and elegant meeting heavy and intentional. The intriguing dimensions and proportions of the tables offer a bold structure underneath, while the top provides a calm and serene surface for arrangements. A charming addition to the home or workplace, Koku is available in two sizes and a number of finishes.
