Kim Choy, theskinnyjoiner at work

Shibui Furniture Collective is a small furniture studio based in Singapore with a strong emphasis on using wood as the primary material and employing traditional joinery techniques for putting wood together that makes a piece of furniture to last for generations. Shibui(渋い), a Japanese aesthetic term that represents simple, subtle and unobtrusive beauty forms the bedrock of Shibui Furniture Collective’s design philosophy. Each piece of work is quiet in its own way and with its strong form, carries a sense of tranquility that helps one to appreciate the subtle details. The beauty of Shibui extends beyond form to function, bringing equal amount attention to construction methods with fine craftsmanship.
