Who is Yoshihara Furniture Co?
Hand made furniture in Seattle, Wa
Over the course of interning for YFCO I developed an understanding of their brand language. Using these insights I began my ideation process. For a design language best characterized as mid century modern, I drew inspiration from the cage structure of other lights of that era.
Materials and Methods
Walnut veneer and 3/16th" plywood were used for this project. Reflecting on YFCO's brand language, walnut was chosen as the main material. The plywood offered a laser cut-able base structure that would be used for the cage.
The veneer was cut to optimize the maximum yield from the material during manufacturing.
