PROJECT | Kanagawa Prefectural Library - Designed by Koichi Futatsumata

24 OCTOBER, 2022

E&Y has planned and edited the furniture for the main building of the Kanagawa Prefectural Library, which opened in September 2022. The main reading seats and lounge furnitures are important not only for their function but also for their design, thus we developed them originally in collaboration with designers Koichi Futatsumata and Sosuke Nakabo.

For further information on the furnitures designed by Sosuke Nakabo here

The design study was conducted after a dialogue about the historical background of the Kanagawa Prefectural Library and interviews with librarians. Koichi Futatsumata worked mainly on the lounge chairs and low tables.

About the lounge chair and low table

"People come to the library to relax and read books. I wanted to depict that behavior itself in the form of a lounge chair. And because it is the furniture that is closest to the user when he or she is relaxing and reading a book, we wanted to create a chair with a relaxing atmosphere with its very existence. Rather than having four legs like a normal lounge chair, I felt it would be better to have a little more spaciousness, which is why the single leg extending from the center to the back was created.
All components were made of 100 mm wide solid wood. Considering the environment of a public library, we were conscious of its strength to withstand the years, and at the same time, we reduced complicated elements into a simple form composed only of the same material, which is also strong enough to support the person in the chair. The side tables and low tables used together were also made from the same 100 mm wide material. We wish that this lounge chair will become an iconic presence that will be remembered as an extension of reading a book in the library." Koichi Futatsumata

"ESKER" released in April 2022 is a stacking chair with a simple shape and structure. By applying unique smoothing to the lines and surfaces of the chair, the entire form, from the frame to the seat, is unified.
For this project, the seat was changed from upholstered type to a wooden one, and the color was changed to navy to fit the space.

PROJECT | Kanagawa Prefectural Library - Designed by Sosuke Nakabo

PROJECT | Kanagawa Prefectural Library - Designed by Sosuke Nakabo

20 OCTOBER, 2022

E&Y has planned and edited the furniture for the main building of the Kanagawa Prefectural Library, which opened in September 2022. The main reading seats and lounge furnitures are important not only for their function but also for their design, thus we developed them originally in collaboration with designers Sousuke Nakabo and Koichi Futatsumata.

In this project, we decided to inherit the history of the original Kanagawa Prefectural Library (now the Kunio Maekawa Pavilion), which Kunio Maekawa designed 70 years ago, and the furniture by Tadaomi Mizunoe, which was manufactured then by Tendo Mokko and used until the library was closed. We also reconsidered the furniture for this new library and also asked Tendo Mokko to collaborate on some of the furniture. This was not a simple collaboration, but rather a decision that was made out of respect for Tendo's heritage and fine work, as well the aim to align with the same design language of 70 years ago, which was in part a matter of necessity. At the same time, our desire was to have a Japanese designer work on the furniture for a Japanese prefectural library, as well as to make sure that the furniture would be loved by the public for many years to come.
Sousuke Nakabo worked mainly on the large reading table, chairs, stools, and the outdoor furniture.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

About the Reading Chairs, Reading Table, Stool, Luggage Rack

"The work by Kunio Maekawa, Tadaomi MIzunoe and Tendo have been deeply invovled in shaping the identity of the Kanagawa Prefectural Library. What I aimed for in collaboration with E&Y was to inherit the history and to pass it down to a new generation. A chair should be comfortable but not too comfortable to make you sleep, and a table should be stable but also gentle to the people who use it. Not too heavy, but not too light.
This was how I thought about the chairs and tables for reading books. I designed them with a sturdy structure of molded plywood and round legs. The chairs are composed of shells and legs, the table that can be connected as long as needed, the stools, and the luggage rack are a series of furniture with a high degree of rationality. It is our hope that the library will become a place of dignity where knowledge gathers, and that the furniture will also become part of the future landscape of this library."

About the Terrace Stools and Tables

"A library for a new generation should offer a variety of ways to read. Relax and read a book on the outdoor terrace during a pleasant season. Or, to take a breath of fresh air while you study. We designed stools and small tables that can be used in such a way."

                                          - Sosuke Nakabo

The SHOE STOOL, which has been like an alter ego to us, has come back after a long journey before our 20th anniversary.
We have a new name it, and a more refined look.
Who knows, maybe it will start another long journey.
This will be a special opportunity to see the re-edited collection by E&Y along with their coat hanger "4FB" in Fukuoka.
We welcome you to visit us.
                                           ー Go Fujito



The SHOE STOOL, the original design of GO, was designed in 2013 as a limited edition item for the 10th anniversary of FUJITO, a fashion brand owned by an old friend. (E&Y was also in charge of OEM production at that time.) It started with a discussion with him about making a product related to shoes, which led to the design of a product that condenses and integrates a series of activities performed, such as putting on shoes, tying shoelaces, brushing shoes, and storing necessary tools, into a single form. After designing 4FB, I was still strongly interested in the idea of combining multiple parts to realize multiple functions as a single object. This product was an example of how this could be sublimated into a unique shape, making it a symbolic project for me in terms of my own approach to design.
After being awarded the wallpaper* award, in 2014, the SHOE STOOL was re-released in a new finish by OPINION CIATTI, a furniture brand based in Florence, Italy. This August it will be released again by E&Y.
For me, this design was initially a very personal project with one of my closest friends. I have decided to give it a new name to express my gratitude and respect for the fact that it was designed as a niche answer to a neighbor in a sense, and that it has received widespread interest and sympathy not only in Japan but internationally, going to places I never imagined it would go, and that it has returned to a place called Japan.

16 AUGUST, 2021

It is already 14 years since the launch of 4FB in Milan.
The SHOE STOOL was designed for an apparel brand 8 years ago.
These two products will be re-edited and presented as a new collection from E&Y.

For its launch, E&Y will co-host a limited term exhibition at LICHT, a gallery which is designed by Koichi Futatsumata.
In this exhibition, Mistuo Suma, the owner of the gallery, will introduce a series of works from the 90's to the present, featuring a composition that presents a new perspective from the past, to the present, and on to the next era. Visitors are welcome to experience the sublimated view of the intersection of time.

All anti-COVID measures will be met to welcome you all.


When designing, we constantly repeat various ways of thinking and creating while maintaining our own advocacy.
Underlying this is the atmosphere and demands of the era. This means that the nature of the product itself will change as time goes by. As a designer, it is an irreplaceable joy to realize that my designs will remain in people's hands and continue to be used for many years to come, while changing the specifications and contents.
This is because I believe that our thoughts as a designer continue to exist and live on.

22 MARCH, 2018

"Exercises in Seating" exhibited by Max Lamb will be held at the Chicago Art Museum.
There are his created chairs in the exhibition, third from edition HORIZONTAL, TOKONOMA - STOOL will also be displayed.
This exhibition focus on his thinking and his approach to materials.
If you are near, please drop in on there.

-

third
This is a 33/33/33 project, where the designer and manufacturer constructing all the components, and the consumer assembling the chair at home, are equally involved in the completion of the piece.
People used to be much more resourceful, but nowadays we have become lazy, less confident, or even lost the practical knowledge entirely.
This is very sad. I would like to encourage people to re-discover their ability for building furniture and regain the confidence to work with tools.
Giving the consumer a certain volume of responsibility, is for them to regain confidence. "third" is a project reflecting these ideas.

edition HORIZONTAL
A multiple refers to a work of art produced as an edition.
It is a representation of something - acquiring value and significance
as a person takes it in his/her hands and intelligently filling the blank space of life.
Created without consideration for functionality,
multiples provide the joy of ownership and captivate us to our psychological core.
Such multiples create relationships that expand over time, like an open vista.
"edition HORIZONTAL" is a collection line by E&Y that presents the artistic aspects of designer's and artisan's work.
The multiples are accompanied by messages from their creators, along with an openness to interpretation.

TOKONOMA
Based upon the Japanese tradition of arranging things, TOKONOMA is a series of products each with their own unique function and each made from a different material, whose formal qualities contrast and compliment one another; material, scale, color, texture and weight. Whether consciously or naturally arranged within the home, the dish, stool, vase and mat combine to serve both practical and aesthetic everyday needs, producing a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

MAX LAMB
Max Lamb (UK, 1980) grew up in a bucolic seaside town in Cornwall, England, an upbringing that imbued him with a love of nature and a creative spirit leading him to explore materials by re-contextualizing them in both conventional and unconventional ways. He celebrates the inherent qualities of his materials and reconsiders their function. Lamb looks to design products that stimulate a positive three-way interaction between product, maker and user through a visual simplicity that effectively communicates the obvious. After completing a degree in Three-Dimensional Design at Northumbria University, Lamb went on to receive a Master's Degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art, London in 2006. A frequent lecturer and design workshop leader, Lamb currently lives in London where he continues to develop new designs that challenge the traditional concepts of the materials he uses and the processes with which he manipulates them.

pots
Two cultures are fused together by the serene act of pouring.
A shared history of brewed leaves, of porcelain, of the intricacy and intimacy of the tea ceremony.
A moment of calm that crosses continents to find reassuring shape.

Faye Toogood
Faye Toogood is a British designer. Her furniture and objects demonstrate a preoccupation with materiality and experimentation. All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material. With an academic training in the theory and practice of fine art, and a vocational background at the forefront of the magazine industry, Toogood approaches product design with a singular and acutely honed eye. Her highly sculptural work, while showing an astute respect for the past, is derived from pure self-expression and instinct. Toogood's objects are grouped together into her trademark numbered 'Assemblages'. This allows her to avoid the formulaic, to experiment with the materials and processes that dominate her thinking at a particular time. With each Assemblage, she engages not only with the products themselves but also with the three-dimensional space in which they are exhibited, working across multiple disciplines to create a single body of work with an intuitive and unified narrative.

TOOGOOD
Eponymous brand established by sisters Faye and Erica Toogood. Faye's celebrated work as a designer has been focused in furniture, interiors, and sculpture. Erica has honored her craft in tailoring as a pattern cutter for several London fashion designers. Their clothing line, inspired by traditional workwear combines their sensitivity to material and shape.

pots
Two cultures are fused together by the serene act of pouring.
A shared history of brewed leaves, of porcelain, of the intricacy and intimacy of the tea ceremony.
A moment of calm that crosses continents to find reassuring shape.

Faye Toogood
Faye Toogood is a British designer. Her furniture and objects demonstrate a preoccupation with materiality and experimentation. All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material. With an academic training in the theory and practice of fine art, and a vocational background at the forefront of the magazine industry, Toogood approaches product design with a singular and acutely honed eye. Her highly sculptural work, while showing an astute respect for the past, is derived from pure self-expression and instinct. Toogood's objects are grouped together into her trademark numbered 'Assemblages'. This allows her to avoid the formulaic, to experiment with the materials and processes that dominate her thinking at a particular time. With each Assemblage, she engages not only with the products themselves but also with the three-dimensional space in which they are exhibited, working across multiple disciplines to create a single body of work with an intuitive and unified narrative.

"in the sky"
Branches fall and tangle with the ones below, gently swinging in the air. I felt a kind of beauty, within the fragile balance a coincidence can create.
My interest towards this kind of beauty gave birth to the "in the sky", an object which shall frame the space with richness.

Koichi Futatsumata
Born in Kagoshima, Japan in 1975. He is based in Fukuoka and Tokyo working internationally with variety of works including architectures, furnitures, products and objects.

TOKONOMA
Based upon the Japanese tradition of arranging things, TOKONOMA is a series of products each with their own unique function and each made from a different material, whose formal qualities contrast and compliment one another; material, scale, color, texture and weight. Whether consciously or naturally arranged within the home, the dish, stool, vase and mat combine to serve both practical and aesthetic everyday needs, producing a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

MAX LAMB
Max Lamb (UK, 1980) grew up in a bucolic seaside town in Cornwall, England, an upbringing that imbued him with a love of nature and a creative spirit leading him to explore materials by re-contextualizing them in both conventional and unconventional ways. He celebrates the inherent qualities of his materials and reconsiders their function. Lamb looks to design products that stimulate a positive three-way interaction between product, maker and user through a visual simplicity that effectively communicates the obvious. After completing a degree in Three-Dimensional Design at Northumbria University, Lamb went on to receive a Master's Degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art, London in 2006. A frequent lecturer and design workshop leader, Lamb currently lives in London where he continues to develop new designs that challenge the traditional concepts of the materials he uses and the processes with which he manipulates them.

EVENT | “SIVUNI” will be displayed at the "Shenzhen International Furniture Exhibition 2017"

20 MARCH, 2017

The "SIVUNI" designed by Mika Tolvanen is going to be displayed at the Shenzhen International Furniture Exhibition 2017.

-

SIVUNI
"SIVUNI" is a new iteration of the original "SIVU" table designed by Mika Tolvanen for E&Y "2005-2006 Collection". This updated version is made from four pieces that are cut, folded, and overlapping. The result is leaner and more playful. The name "SIVUNI" involves some wordplay. "Ni" in Japanese means 'two' ("SIVU" number two). "SIVU" in Finnish means "page" (since it's a magazine holder). Adding the "ni" changes the meaning to "My page." It gives a tender impression to the space with the original shape designed by Mika.

MIKA TOLVANEN
Mika was born in Finland in 1975. After receiving his BA from the University of Art and Design, Helsinki in 1998 he worked with the design consultancy Muodos Oy. Going on to receive a degree from the Royal College of Art, London in 2002 he then worked briefly in the Tom Dixon's studio. Again Helsinki-based, now with his own Studio Mika Tolvanen he showed at the Milan Salone del Mobile in 2005 as a member of the 'Rehti' group. Studio Mika Tolvanen designs furniture, lighting and consumer goods. Recent clients include FontanaArte, Muuto, Frag, Zanotta, E&Y, Offecct and KFF. In 2012 he received Bruno Mathsson award for his work.
