Karimoku Color Bin


the kioke wooden barrel, reimagined for the home

The Color Bin is a multi-functional wooden container expertly crafted from individual slabs of chestnut wood using a traditional wood joinery process. It's a technique that's inspired by Japan's 'kioke' wooden barrels which are used to make everything from soy sauce and sake to whiskey. 

These beautiful containers can be used for just about anything too, as their refined presence makes a subtle statement in just about any place in the home. Designed by Dutch studio Scholten & Baijings and crafted by artisans at Japanese furniture company Karimoku, Color Bins pay homage to Japanese craftsmanship.
