EastWest Type Tables
These side tables for typographic obsessives were inspired by the load-bearing, structural forms of Japanese kanji. They can be read & used horizontally or as a vertical stack. Higashi (東 – east) and nishi (西 – west) also form the compound word tozai (東西), meaning the wider world.
Format: CNC router cut, hand glued & finished in Scandinavian oil & beeswax each table 500x500x230mm, hardwood plywood & food-safe glue.
A project in collaboration with Saori Kajiwara.
For your favourite typography books
I discovered a few wood type projects by Matt Innes of Melbourne, Australia. These bookshelf letters, made with a CNC router out of Jarrah-faced birch plywood, are a personal project. They look gorgeous. Each letter has been sized to fit just “those books you go back to time & again”.
Made in collaboration with Saori Kajiwara. 600 x 250 x 190mm per character.
