Urban Living Showcase @ FIND Design Fair Asia – ACRE Design
LIVING LARGE IN SMALL SPACES
KERNEL+ is a collection designed by award winning Japanese designer Keiji Ashizawa and KERNEL, featuring design qualities and functionality that reflect today’s world.
Designed with small spaces in mind, the cross pollination of cultures (Singapore and Japan) can be seen in the collection responding to the growing need for work-from-home situations and the need for more flexible furniture that doesn’t take up too much space. The collection is distinguished by its geometric aesthetic and meticulous detailing, perfectly suited for the modern urban home.

“I wish this collection would bring lightness in the small space, which is derived from the design and colour.” - Keiji Ashizawa
Keiji Ashizawa (b. 1973) lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. Keiji Ashizawa presents work of ‘honest’ design – simple yet refined, thoughtful, and of a light manner – derived naturally through the process of attempting to maximise the potential of each material and its function.
