NIIC : Fine wooden furniture hand-crafted right here in Japan. Everything we do is dedicated to our customers. At Nagano Interior we hand-make our fine pieces, one by one. That’s how we maintain our consistently high quality and stable output. We manufacture everything in-house, right here in Japan. Our highly skilled artisans fulfill small-lot orders for a wide variety of items. We supply outstanding products by carefully balancing the factors of quality, price and reliable delivery.

DI: What is "design" for you?

NIIC : Three basics are the basis of our design. The first is a design that can be used for a long time. The second is that the user can freely customize. And the third is diversity, which can be used in various places. We have these things in our hearts when we design.

DI: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?

NIIC : We use solid natural wood when designing furniture.

DI: Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?

NIIC : We design new products every quarter.
