Design Practice:

Project Title:

Kama-Asa Shop

Project Location:

Tokyo, Japan

All project descriptions are provided by SBID Awards entrants.

The rebar is a stick-shaped rolled steel material formed from irregular nubs called ribs and joints that are used as a building construction material.

As Kama-Asa Shop’s policy is set on belief that good tools are made for good reason, it delivers to the customers excellent skills of craftsmen, which make kitchen utensils.

Therefore, the most appropriate for the shop’s space was to show architectural skills of craftsmen. The rebar that is usually hidden in the wall became the main design.

Handrails and furniture were designed with rebar. Although they are simple, they still require the use of craftsman skills.
The knives’ shelves are made from railroad ties. They express the long history of knives that can be used for many years.

As designers, Kamitopen hope that craftsmen skills will be introduced to many people.
