  • About the interior design firm
    “From thought to reality to connection” Clients have their own ideas to express to the public. The ideas can’t be expressed without being converted into ”words”. They also can’t be passed on without being transformed into “forms”. We are the designers who create the “words” and the “forms”. By putting “thoughts” into “words”, which morph into ”forms”, a diverse range of people will be able to read and understand the ideas of the client. This is the “design” that we aim for.

Concept - the rebar
The rebar is a stick-shaped rolled steel material formed from irregular nubs called ribs and joints that are used as a building construction material.
As KAMA-ASA Shop's policy is set on belief that good tools are made for good reason, it delivers to the customers excellent skills of craftsmen, which make kitchen utensils.
Therefore, the most appropriate for the shop's space was to show architectural skills of craftsmen. The rebar that is usually hidden in the wall became the main design.Handrails and furniture were designed with rebar.
