On a recent trip to Osaka I visited one of my favorite Japanese design studios — Graf — and it did not disappoint! Located along one of the canals, Graf sprawls over four floors of an unassuming building: the first floor is home to a beautiful cafe that also offers workshops, the next a showroom and the top two floors house the studio and office where the Graf team masterminds their minimalist designs. The products are displayed like only the Japanese can — with restraint and impeccably curated with natural timbers, plants and the perfect ambient lighting. I was delighted to also find a collaboration with two other genius design Japanese companies, Hum
. I especially like the kids rocking chair, the mini ceramics and the wooden magnets.
