After a standout chair, stool and bench, it seems only fitting that Karimoku New Standard has added the impressive Castor Table to the series. At its essence, the collection revels in a marked simplicity with a design scheme of slender supporting legs inset in each piece. The table comes in two sizes, the rectangle a doubling of the square-and can be combined to any desired configuration with the legs flush, framing the inset rounded-edge tabletop. Light and compact, there is no extraneous detail to detract from the superb Japanese oak. By Swiss design firm Big-Game, one of Karimoku New Standard's prime collaborative partners in their newly-minted quest to engage exciting new international talent as well as to promote responsible craftsmanship with their ongoing efforts to preserve and revitalize Japanese hardwood forests at home.
