Time & Style has been working together with Kengo Kuma and Associates since 2009, manufacturing furniture for his many new projects over the last 10 years.
His furniture has a good style of design, functionality and durability so that it can be used not only with his own architecture but also more widely in ordinary homes. There has been more ongoing projects over the last 10 years from 2009 to 2019, and a wider variety of furniture has been released including chairs, sofas, tables and coffee tables, achieving further diversity and flexibility.
Although the architecture of Kengo Kuma has become well-known throughout the world, few people know that he also independently designs almost all of the furniture to accompany his architecture.
This will be the first European exhibition of the furniture he has designed for his projects over the last 10 years, which has been commercialized together with Time & Style.
