Inspiration from designer:
In Japanese KAI means a pocket that is hidden inside a Japanese Kimono. In a similar way, Kai Table comprises multiple separate storage spaces that differ in size and form. They represent important values. Once they are combined, their meaning is strengthened and our mind is broadened. On the design level, the combination accounts for greater capacity.
