Make over of medicine chest

Medicine chest is one of the style of Japanese tansu chest. Doctors’ office and pharmacy used to use them to store herbal medicine and front panel of each drawers indicate which medicine is stored in the drawer.


Japanese traditional chest lost popularity contest position against contemporary furniture. But for high-end condominium Anaha project we requested Rich of RJMD, who repairs historical and high-end furniture, to work with us in order to tweak them for this project. We also need to work on two additional pieces. We are looking forward to see how they will come out.


Carrying on the family traditions and history while changing them to meet the needs of current age: I believe it is one of our mission as a designer.

Me ka aloha pumehana,
