Yuma Kano is a young Japanese designer based in Tokyo. In Spring 2012 he set up his own design office called studio yumakano and since then he’s been creating projects that cover everything from interiors, architectural art, installations and product designs.
One of my favourite pieces of his are these terrific display boxes for shoes. Designed for surveyors, plasters, mechanics and other craftsmen, the boxes hold a pair of heavy duty shoes. They also function as a toolbox, letting people carry around other items from the workshop to site.
Not only is it a useful and functional design but it also looks terrific. I love perforated wood and Satori Ikegami simple but sharp photographs make them look really inviting. If I had a workshop I think I’d like to own one of these too. You can see more pictures of the tool box here.
