At TRUCK, which consists of a home, studio, warehouse, storefront, and the Bird Cafe built on the same grounds, I met with Tokuhiko Kise, the brains and brawn behind it all. I also met Hiromi, his wife and TRUCK co-founder and some other family members including a 5-year-old daughter, 4 cats and 8 dogs.
Back in 1997 when the couple f ounded TRUCK, they decided to honour the ideas of originality in design and function, by doing everything by hand, from the building of their studio to the furniture produced in it.
“We respect the rustic style of wood, leather, metal, and every
material we use.” says Tokuhiko.
