Designers include Matthew Hilton, Industrial Facility’s Sam Hecht & Kim Colin, Reiko Kaneko, Livia Lauber,Philippe Malouin, Daniel Schofield, and Ilse Crawford & Oscar Peña. The brief given by Coakley and Ashizawa to the group was simple: to design a piece of furniture or object from stock board widths in Western red cedar. Designers worked within the constraints of the Ishinomaki Laboratory guidelines, considering available machinery and tools, while designing to minimise waste. This way, all pieces in the collection can be easily reproduced by any global Ishinomaki Laboratory partner.

Originating from the boards, the pieces feature simple compositions and compact forms, and consider contemporary living as well as the needs of public and hospitality spaces – each interpretation offering a diverse point of view on the material and construction techniques.
