Founded in 2011, Ishinomaki Laboratory started as a simple, public workshop for the local community devastated by the tsunami triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake. Along with running DIY workshops for residents affected by the disaster, the Ishinomaki team participated in restoring and renovating local shops as well as creating products and spaces for the community.
Combining good design with “handmade” products, the Ishinomaki Laboratory label was launched to market the products beyond the local community. Talented designers, from Japan and abroad, work together with the Ishinomaki Laboratory team to create a line-up of furniture and items that can be enjoyed together.
The Made in Local initiative started as a simple desire to somehow bring Ishinomaki Lab’s designs and story to a local context, and has since grown to encompass a more thorough relationship with people (local makers and market), place (locally-available materials), and product.
Made in Local projects are currently located in London, Manila, Berlin
