During Milan Design Week 2023, KOYORI presents two new tables and two new series of upholstery textiles, complementing the inaugural collection of furniture introduced by the brand last year. Like all KOYORI products, the new additions embody a distinct sense of Japanese aesthetics.
The KOYORI brand was established in 2022 by some of Japan’s leading furniture and interior décor manufacturers, and the brand identity was formed under the watchful eye of the iconic British product and furniture designer, Jasper Morrison, in the role of Art Directing Advisor, and co-designed by Sebastian Fehr. Crafted using outstanding Japanese manufacturing technology, all KOYORI products are made to be cherished for generations and to bestow happiness on their owners.
Among the new tables designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, one is the NEI table made in solid wood, using high-precision cutting and joining techniques. The shape of the tabletop and the natural curvature of the leg work in perfect harmony to bring out the beauty of the table, which is set to be the next torchbearer of the KOYORI brand.
The other table being presented by KOYORI is Usurai, also designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. Crafted using an ultramodern cross-cut lamination technique to reveal layers of white beech and oak veneer in an eye-catching striped wood-grain pattern, this beautiful table rethinks molded plywood furniture.
In addition, KOYORI’s Kawara armchair is now available in two versatile new series of upholstery fabrics from the innovative Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat.
ALLE, designed by Ronan Bouroullec in premium-quality wool is inspired by his drawings and converted into three-dimensional fabric. The fabric pattern perfectly matches the wood pattern of the chair.
The other is CLAY by Sahco, a popular textile that brings together natural beauty and a sense of finesse. Mixed colors of yarn in warp and weft, create an elegant yet casual fabric.
