Maruni wood industries has been taking on the noble task of translating Japanese craftsmanship into industrial products since 1928. Their products aim to represent the intrinsic values of Japanese design and be modern and forward looking at the same time. That is quite a promise already and then on top of that they pledge to take care of the environment and their position in society as well.
It results in elegant products, delicate and functional at the same time. Muruni often teams up with international designers to reimagine their Japanese heritage.
