This project is for the newly established cafeteria “CS PLAZA” of Tokyo Zokei University.
We have designed tables, chairs, and counters for indoor use, and also exterior tables and chairs for the terrace, and counters for the cafe and more.

My intention was that the most ideal concept is to let furniture work as “foundation-like” object to support students’ communication or imagination.  It is because the cafeteria is not simply for having meals or enjoying teatime but also for having conversation with others, or getting absorbed in thought.  With this idea, each furniture unit was designed not to be showy, and the atmosphere as a whole space with totally 500 seats was constantly in my consideration. The bamboo plywood, which is very durable for long-term use, is selected as a main material for the indoor furniture.
