Karimoku New Standard: Sustainability and minimalism
04/04/2018 - The Japanese contemporary furniture brand Karimoku New Standard showcases again at Salone del Mobile in April, debuting the simple yet striking universal chair, PANORAMA, by Berlin designers GECKELER MICHELS, PROP, a line of shelving by Swiss design studio BIG-GAME, the ARCHIVE shelf by German designer CHRISTIAN HAAS as well as a number of new additions to existing collections, such as the Elephant Sofa as a 1-seater and island, the Castor barstool with a backrest and the scout bistro bar table. In addition, a series of developments in existing collections and a new striking colour round off the comprehensive presentation.
 
With an exhibition design by Karimoku New Standard’s creative director David Glaettli, the presentation showcases in four interconnected rooms. The reduced exhibition design plays with the usual staged settings at trade fairs by unmasking for example the simple construction of the walls and using it as a decorative detail instead.
PANORAMA CHAIR

PANORAMA CHAIR

PANORAMA CHAIR - Design Geckeler Michels
Panorama is a plain, universal chair, made of sustainably sourced Japanese oak wood, that complements Karimoku New Standard’s iconic range of high-end wood crafted furniture. It offers high versatility with a focus on professional applications from meeting rooms, lecture halls to restaurants. The generously dimensioned and elaborately bent plywood seat and backrest have a striking, unique linear look, that evokes sheets of paper. The chair family features versions with compact yet comfortable armrests and with runners that allow a forward tilting sitting position for active working environments. Karimoku New Standard introduces Panorama in the new colour Night Blue.
PROP SHELVING SYSTEM

PROP SHELVING SYSTEM

PROP SHELVING SYSTEM - Design BIG-GAME
PROP is a line of shelving and storage units consisting of low boards/ TV boards and sideboards in different sizes. The design is build on the bold, L-shaped side modules that give the shelf great stability while reducing its component parts and creating its characteristic appearance. The well-conceived proportions and details, with easy to use, removable sliding doors, make PROP well suited for storage and display in living rooms, hallways and offices. PROP is crafted from sustainably sourced Japanese oak wood and looks as beautiful from the back as it does from the front.
ARCHIVE SHELF

ARCHIVE SHELF

ARCHIVE SHELF - Design Christian Haas
While in the digital age we own less books, magazines, CD’s and records, the ARCHIVE shelf is conceived as a platform for the personal items we collect, keep safe and hold dear over the years. The shelves store and display everything we like to use, see or be reminded of every day. It comes in two sizes and together with a set of specially made book-stands. Making use of Karimoku’s expertise in wood craftsmanship, the shelfs are assembled from slender beams and boards made of solid Japanese oak wood. The beautifully crafted details, elegant joints and slightly curved fronts make the ARCHIVE shelf a centrepiece in every room.
ELEPHANT SOFA

ELEPHANT SOFA

ELEPHANT SOFA - Design: Christian Haas
The Elephant Sofa is a strikingly simple and elegant, versatile upholstery range, designed to function in private - as well as public places. Its calm and soft forms suggest timeless comfort and an unobtrusive cosiness. The curved armrests invite to relax and allow different sitting postures. Its elaborate details like the feet carved from solid chestnut wood, make the sofa a unique piece of furniture. The upholstery is firm but comfortable, containing a durable pocket spring core upholstered with a high-performance Maharam fabric made from recycled synthetic materials, with an appealing, woolly texture. The new 1-seater lobby chair and the Island module complete the series, consisting of a 3-seater, 2-seater, Ottoman and Chaiselongue.

The barstools come in two heights to suit different surroundings from the kitchen counter at home to counters in cafes, bars or lobbies.
