torafu architects: koloro desk and stool

‘koloro’ by torafu architects all photos by akihiro ito

the ‘koloro – desk’ is a workstation which has three flip-out windows on each of its vertical sides, along with a ‘skylight’, making the unit feel more open and accessible when desired. in this manner, the openings double-function as shevles for displaying small objects. alternatively, the windows may be easily closed to create a small private area where no one can interrupt your thoughts while you are working away (or sleeping!). designed by japanese firm torafu architects for japanese brand ichiro, the bureau offers space for lighting, flora, hooks for bags and a cord manager for computer use. the accompanying ‘koloro – stool’ is shaped like a vaulting horse and has a removable seat so that one may keep toys and other items inside.

  • I saw something very similar when I visited Vitra in April last year – they had 6 stations and were experimenting with different internal colours within the box work stations with the intention of enhancing or altering the mood of the ‘occupant’
