Tokyo Tribal is a collection of compact furniture designed by Nendo for Industry+
The frames are made from solid oak and the top board finishes are volcanic sand plaster. Bamboo rattan that is hand-woven by local artisans in the Philippines is used to create back-supports, which take advantage of the bamboo's excellent elastic properties, as well as basket-shaped storage compartments that sit within the legs of a stool or intersect table legs.
