TSUMIKI / Furniture


TSUMIKI is an innovative storage system for urban nomadic lifestyle. Users can enjoy customizing according with their houses or lifestyles. Homes are changing. Especially in urban areas, more people are living in rented accomodation, adopting a nomadic lifestyle, working from home and owing small spaces. Flat-packing furniture apparently seems to be a solution for compact living. However, its components are easy to break or to be lost. As a result, it does not work for long term or at new place any more. Tsumiki is easy to carry and build. In addition, its playfulness and versatality can bring long-term use with robust wooden structure.
