What’s OPEN SOURCE FURNITURES?

They used general products and uploaded all drawings to the website. Therefore, these designs might also be able to call the “open source furniture” so to speak. Because these designs enable everyone to make functional office furnitures inexpensively

Spicebok Offices in Tokyo, Japan by nendo

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Article source: nendo 

The office space design for spicebox, a comprehensive digital agency that works across strategic planning, interactive promotion and creative digital marketing, and is part of the Hakuhodo stable. The firm’s name symbolises the ability to deliver surprises and delight, like a variety of stimuli that come tumbling out of a box, so we placed seven box-shaped meeting rooms of differing sizes and finishes around the office, all of which are entered by a wall that has been ‘flipping open’.

Aluminum Flower Garden in Tokyo, Japan by MORIYUKI OCHIAI ARCHITECTS / TWOPLUS-A

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Article source: MORIYUKI OCHIAI ARCHITECTS / TWOPLUS-A

During the course of planning the layout for the HANA (Japanese for “flower”) restaurant / bar and event space, we were challenged to come up with a concept that would evoke the floral imagery of the establishment’s eponymous name.

In a country with limited resources such as Japan, the spirit of Monodzukuri is the epitome of ingenuity at the service of craftsmanship.

Incorporating a concept that robustly expressed the client company into this building was an important theme.

This is the complex building with clinic on the first floor and the doctor’s dwelling place on the second floor. With the tree planting that bring better feeling to patients in the inner courtyard, they can be viewed from the lobby and entrance of the clinic. Furthermore, as the trees can also be seen from outside of the building through the deck, people walking by should also be able to feel the season’s change.

Geo Metria in Kanagawa, Japan by MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

Article source: MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Structure of the land
On the crest of Hakone´s mountain range along the Odawara plain is a site. It´s sunny rolling hillside was once planted with fruit trees. On the south side you have a clear view of the distant Sagami Bay, north of the site a mountain gives shelter from the north wind. Deciduous broad-leaved trees cast soothing shadow in summer, in winter they shed their leaves and allow weak sunlight to warm up the moist mountain soil. The perfect living environment was there, waiting quietly to be found. Rather than bringing a new priciple that is not derived from the land in order to complete a „normal“ house, a place of habitability should be established here.
