Appreciation towards Keiji Ashizawa Design + Norm Architects for providing the following description:
该项目是日本家具品牌Karimoku的第四个研究项目，由Norm Architects事务所和Keiji Ashizawa Design事务所合作完成。它以最新精品木质家具系列设计作为公寓改造的一部分，并以东京Nishi-Azabu住宅区中一栋建于1988年的豪华公寓楼为背景。公寓楼建在宽敞通风的地块上，如今在东京很少见。其入口周围设有绿化，经过园艺师的精心维护，这里和谐地欢迎着到访者，在城市中心创造出宁静感以及与自然的连接。
The Azabu Residence is the fourth case study project of Japanese furniture brand Karimoku Case Study and is conceived in close collaboration between Norm Architects and Keiji Ashizawa Design. The latest additions to the collection of fine wooden furniture pieces are created as part of this complete renovation project and have its native setting in a luxury apartment built in 1988, tucked away in the quiet Nishi-Azabu residential district of Tokyo. The apartment was built on a spacious and airy plot, rarely seen in Tokyo today. The greenery surrounding the entrance is meticulously maintained by gardeners and welcomes visitors in a harmonious way that establishes a sense of calm and connection to nature in the middle of the city.

Similar to the previous Case Study projects, the Azabu apartment combines Japanese and Scandinavian design principles and aesthetics. A shared belief in the use of natural materials and a muted color palette lies as the foundation of the project, characterized by the focus on tactile, soft-minimal and timeless qualities. In contrast to the previous Case Study projects as the Kinuta Terrace Apartments in Tokyo and the Archipelago House in Sweden, the Azabu Residence Project is completed in muted, dark tones enhancing and embracing the intimacy of shadows. The spacious but dimly lit apartment is a cozy, humancentric and protective dwelling away from the noise of the city. A calm and embracing interior for contemplation and private family life.

One of the core elements of the Case Study brand is the study of design and architectural history and the inspiration for many of the projects has been sparked by field trips to architectural sites, gardens, parks and temples in both Japan and Denmark. The Azabu project was designed shortly after a trip to the Americas and the inspiration of mid-century American and Brazilian modernism is evident in use of warm dark natural materials and wooden wall paneling, lush carpets and tactile upholstery, in the case translated into a new and dark version of a Japanese-Scandinavian interior.

“室内以中世纪美国现代风格为灵感，使用石材、深色木材和织物。生活区带有酒柜壁龛、开放式厨房、华丽的地毯和舒适的家具，它们均从洛杉矶的辛德勒住宅到《广告狂人》剧集里奢华的纽约公寓等一系列元素中汲取灵感。”——Frederik Werner, Norm Architects
“With the use of stone, dark wood and textured textiles, the interior plays on inspiration from mid-century American Modernism. The living areas with a small bar niche, the open plan kitchen, lush carpets and bulky comfortable furniture draws inspiration from an array of elements – from the Japanese inspired Schindler House in Los Angles to the extravagant New York apartments featured in the series Mad Men” — Frederik Werner, Norm Architects

“另一个主要叙述的灵感来自谷崎润一郎的著作《阴翳礼赞》，这是我们第一次在日本考察时Keiji Ashizawa向我们推荐的作品。在斯堪的纳维亚，我们经常使用明亮的白色墙壁来增强日光，但通过谷崎润一郎的描写，我们了解了阴翳之美并选择加强场所特性，从而形成了单一深色色调。”——Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, Norm Architects
“Another main narrative in the interior design is inspired by the well-known Japanese book by Jun’ichirō Tanizaki, “In Praise of Shadows”, that was recommended to us by Keiji Ashizawa on one of our first field trips in Japan. In Scandinavia we often work with bright white walls to enhance daylight, but through the writings of Jun’ichirō Tanizaki, we understood the value of dark, dim places and chose to celebrate and enhance the nature of the site, which resulted in a dark monochrome material palette.”— Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, Norm Architects

“经过与Norm Architects事务所的讨论，我们认同将这座建筑的独特氛围融入室内设计中。无论采用哪种深色调统一空间，在早晨和下午，这个家都十分美丽，与阳光直射室内形成对比。在夜晚，精心的灯光设计又营造出独特的空间氛围。” ——Keiji Ashizawa
“Over discussions with Norm Architects, we agreed that the unique ambiance of this building should be incorporated in the interior design. Regardless of the dark tones used to unify the space, the beauty of this home stands out in the morning and early afternoon, with the contrast of direct sunlight peeking into the space, and at night, when the ambiance of the space is created by an elaborate artificial light scheme.”— Keiji Ashizawa

A-DT02（由Keiji Ashizawa Design设计）
A-DT02 by Keiji Ashizawa Design
The angle at which the cross section of each leg is attached gives the table a unique structural elegance and supports the tabletop, superseding the need for aprons. When placed in a context, the wooden table seems to float in effortless interplay with its surroundings, elevating the atmosphere and character of the space. In spite of its size, the table appears light and discreet, allowing the organic form of the chairs placed around it to stand out.

A-B01（由Keiji Ashizawa Design设计）
A-B01 by Keiji Ashizawa Design
The bench was designed to accommodate the need of a multi-purpose piece, both comfortable used for seating but with aesthetic capabilities befitting a display stand. The thin edges of the seat and legs gives the piece a light and ex- clusive appearance while the transverse strut connected to the seat with a deli- cate steel rod, ties the construction together visually and functionally, creating a sense of overall harmony.

N-S02 by Norm Architects
The N-S02 modular sofa is built of a solid wooden base and soft upholstery. Rounded cushions invite the user into its universe whilst a dark timber frame with exquisite crafted joinery details compliments the design and underlines a production heritage so unique to Karimoku, Japan.
“对我们来说，创造有特点且友好的沙发十分重要。我们希望它柔软舒适，但轮廓仍然分明且有设计感。”——Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, Norm Architects
“It has been important for us to create a sofa with a strong identity and a welcoming expression — we wanted to keep it soft and relaxed, but with curves and lines that are still defined and architectural.”— Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, Norm Architects

Bespoke Wall Shelf by Norm Architects
Repetition and patterns often have a calming and relaxing effect on us – We have designed the bespoke wall shelves with this in mind. A simple, yet elegant modular system with the possibility to extend the shelves infinitely.

“我们一直致力于创造具有雕塑感、设计感且温馨的小型产品，无论产品多少，它应该是实用而美观的。”——Frederik Werner, Norm Architects
“We have strived to create a minimal product that has a sculptural, warm and architectural expression — it should be functional and beautiful, whether few or many items are on display.”— Frederik Werner, Norm Architects
