In line with Karimoku’s philosophy, Karimoku New Standard supports the sustainable use of forest resources and experiments with new methods to retrieve a balance between global environments and local industry. Karimoku New Standard products are predominantly made of solid Japanese hardwoods such as maple, chestnut and oak. The wood stems from low-diameter trees that have previously remained significantly underused, usually ending up as wood chips for paper pulp. Likewise, Karimoku New Standard makes the most out of Karimoku’s know-how accumulated over generations of furniture-making and uses its well-equipped factories for manufacturing. A deep understanding of experienced craftsmanship, together with cutting-edge technologies produces furniture that meets the highest standard. Since its founding, Karimoku New Standard has manufactured 15 innovative pieces of furniture and 4 home accessories, all of which are versatile products that carry the silent beauty of every day life.
