As versatile and complementing minimalist furniture can be, Keiji Design shows that there still needs to be a level of creativity to make them stand out. The true art of minimalist furniture is to have them grab people's attention while still being completely unassuming. And Keiji Design does that with ease.
Founded by Japanese designer Keiji Ashizawa, who brought us the stunning Hirosaki Knife Box, Keiji Design creates similar furniture pieces. For instance, his cabinets take on a stacked look that shift for easier access. Yet it is this malleable function that really wows the crowd. The addition of metal rods creates a nice dynamic with the wood, creating more interest for the eyes while the gap between each drawer acts as the "handle."
