kazuhiro yamanaka creates colorful tennis-strings interior collection

design studio kazuhiro yamanaka presents a vibrant furniture collection and interior space made out of colorful tennis strings. the project, entitled ‘passage’, is created as part of ‘the parkhouse hanakoganei’ — a complex housing development for mitsubishi jisho residence in tokyo. the tennis-strings interior collection includes, among others, trapezoid shaped tables and a tri-colored set of chairs.

kazuhiro yamanaka has designed both the furniture and interiors of mitsubishi jisho residence‘s housing project by using a limited set of colors — emphasizing the spaces and users. the choice of material for the ‘passage’ collection seems quite unusual, but the tennis strings have proven to be strong enough in terms of structure and the final result gives the right kind of elasticity to the seat and backrest of the chairs — ensuring comfortable and safe use.
