It’s not just a name, gradations and textures define Japanese design office id‘s collection of home furnishings.
Details: New brand Yokohama Makers Village (YMV), founded by several Yokohama-based metal processing companies, teamed up with id to design consumer products using manufacturing methods normally used to make non-consumer, infrastructure products usually unseen by the general public. “Although the whole collections take advantage of metallic strengths, each product leaves a soft impression.” says id.
The Gradation Chair gradually changes in form, from the legs, made with square poles, to the backrest, made with round pole.
The Gradation Lamp presents a color gradation on its base and inside the light shade when turned on.
The Gradation Tray is gradationally colored by a heating process.
The Texture Tray has unique patterns created by a coating process. “The fresh and clear work with an irregular surface attracts people in a way simple painting cannot bring out.” says id.
The Texture stone is an accessory case as well as a code holder, with a “unique shape and texture to be tempted to touch.”
