SPECIAL EDITION

TRUCK FURNITURE 20th Aniversary EST.1997

It has been 20 years since we first opened TRUCK in January 1997. We feel the same way about furniture now as we did then. We make the kind of furniture that we ourselves would want and would want to use for a lifetime. When people come across our products and think that they're good – that alone makes us happy. Even if it is a piece of furniture that we make every day, to our customers, it is their one, special piece that they will have for life. So we must make it right. We must make it better. We don't cut corners – we strive to make products that are honest all around. And that will never change.

1997年1月にTRUCKをオープンしてから気がつけば20年。幸せなことに、ずっと変わらずに同じ気持ち。流行に流されず、自分たちが欲しい、ずっと使いたいと思う家具を作る。それをわかってくれる人が手にとってくれて、それをいいと言ってもらえればそれで幸せ。お客さんにとってはそのひとつがずっとの家具。だからちゃんと作らないと。ちょっとでもいいものにして渡したい。裏側の見えないところでも嘘のないものを正直に作りたい。これからもこの気持ちは変わらない。

Our Furrowed-Leather Arm Chair, with its thin and light steel frame and furrowed-leather seat, has been a steady favorite of our customers ever since its release. Twenty years later, we kept its comfortable and spacious width and replaced the original steel frame with a new one of Japanese oak. The seat, which was formerly only available in leather, is now also available in multiple choices of fabric. The atmosphere and comfort that the chair creates allows you to spend a little time out of your busy everyday life comfortably, perhaps even with one of your favorite books.

MAKING TRUCK
1996-2006

January 1997, Tamatsukuri, Osaka. It was here, in an area with not so much as another shop around, that we, Tokuhiko Kise and Hiromi Karatsu, with our Labrador, Buddy, first opened our furniture store, TRUCK. We never follow popular trends; instead, we make and sell furniture that we ourselves would want. TRUCK furniture isn't sold wholesale to anyone anywhere else; it is only found under our own roof where we ourselves can watch over and care for it. Because we care about not just the furniture but also the space in which it is in, we have also made and designed our store space by ourselves. We want to take a look back on the thirteen years from the first opening of TRUCK in the dilapidated, ghost-like building that we rented in 1996, to the store's move to our current location in Asahi-ku in December 2009.
