KENGO KUMA

Furniture that blends into the surroundings

The works of architect Kengo Kuma draw no borders between the realms of buildings and furniture. He creates architecture and interior space, and also designs furniture that utilizes that space himself. To Kuma, furniture is an indispensable element of architecture, whose final placement breathes life into a building.

In this book, we share reflections on Kuma’s furniture and take a look at the various products and over 30 projects that Kuma has developed in collaboration with Time & Style both in Japan and abroad.
