Ishinomaki bench

Keiji Ashizawa | Ishinomaki Laboratory

Ishinomaki Laboratory is a community workshop established by designers in the wake of the 2011 tsunami.

The very first product of the Ishinomaki Laboratory workshop was the Ishinomaki bench. Developed with cooperation between the Ishinomkai Industrial high school students and designers at Ishinomaki Laboratory for use at the temporary outdoor movie theatre, the benches have become popular items used in the community ever since. Designed to withstand the elements, the benches are ideal for the garden or veranda, as well as giving a rustic touch to interior spaces. 

Made from Red Cedar. Suitable for outdoor use.

Started in 2011 as a community workshop within the post-Tohoku earthquake and tsunami landscape, the Ishinomaki Laboratory has gone on to develop a range of simple products in the spirit of do-it-yourself. Their collection includes specially commissioned products from designers and architects including project founder Keiji Ashizawa, Tomoko Azumi, Fabien Cappello, Torafu Architects, Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad, Taiji Fujimori, Tomás Alonso, Shigeichiro Takeuchi and Julian Patterson.

In 2017, SCP began manufacturing Ishinomaki’s furniture at their factory in Norfolk, UK, using the same materials and techniques as were used in the very beginning.
