Design For Industry | Daisuke Kitagawa

We were really enamoured with the work of Daisuke Kitagawa when we visited Milan for Design Week last month. The scenery collection which he unveiled at SiloneSatellite reflects the city, aiming to distill cityscapes into a range of indoor homewares. 

The Floe table (pictured above) takes the concept of a central table in it's essence, but has adapted the surface to express a lightness of form. Kitagawa explains that the adaptations are all designed to lift the piece, with the reflective base and glass sections working together to give a light, airy aesthetic.   

The Lattice cabinet (pictured above) forgoes drawer handles in favour of sliding doors. Much like the Japanese shoji screen door designs, the door can be opened using the partition segments. 

Kitagawa's Street lighting (pictured above) comprises of a pair of lamps which take their form from instantly recognisable street lights. The circle design at the tip can be angled to create a thin line silhouette or bold circle. 

The Struct series of chairs (pictured above) are designed to be a simple, comfortable chair which can be used in a variety of scenes. They are stackable and come in an earthy, complimentary palette.
