The Aizome Cabinet was designed to be a highly functional storage piece suitable for smaller spaces. Quiet, hidden details, including a concealed second handle and a recessed top surface for additional storage, find balance with a bold colour palette. The rectilinear cabinet acts as a canvas for traditional Japanese colours and finishes, and incorporates sumi ink, red dye, and two contrasting shades of unmistakable Japanese Indigo, or Aizome

The cabinet was designed for the new Japanese brand, Ariake, during an intensive design workshop in the small town of Morodomi in Southern Japan. Organized by Gabriel Tan, the week-long workshop included Norm Architects (Denmark), Anderssen & Voll (Norway), Staffan Holm (Sweden), Keji Ashizawa (Japan), Shin Azumi (Japan), AnnerPerrin (Switzerland), Sebastian Stadler (Switzerland), as well as Zoë Mowat Design.
