¦Concept behind furnish
- To take an ordinary item and transform it to something that is not only practical, but fun to use.
- 80% fun factor combined with 20% self-expression.
(Here, self expression refers to the flexibility in the usersf interpretation and arrangement of the product to best
fit their way of life)
All products produced by furnish are made in Japan.
furnish is based in Tokyofs Adachi-ward suburbs. By utilizing traditional local manufacturers in the area for
cutting and printing, others in Arakawa-ward for the package and through fabric manufactuers in Saitama Pref.,
all products are individually hand-made. For this reason, most products are not mass-produced and carefully
made one step at a time.
furnish will continue to design and produce new products utilizing traditional Japanese techniques.
