The KOBO SOFA, with its simple wooden frame and cushions, was originally designed for an IT company's office that had opened in order to support reconstruction efforts after the 2011 earthquake. For Ishinomaki Laboratory by Karimoku’s version of this classic product, elements such as seating comfort and the overall way a sofa is used were reconsidered. While retaining the DIY feeling of the original design, the Karimoku quality of craftsmanship is apparent from the laminated solid wood frame. Its low proportions and deeper seating make it suitable for a variety of situations.
