Ishinomaki Laboratory is a community workshop established by designers in the wake of the 2011 tsunami.
The Kobo bench is a small and convenient workbench designed for use in tight spaces. Though compact, it has a distinct presence, and is destined to become a long-time favourite outdoors.The bench will also feel at home in any house with a natural-looking theme.
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.
