Ariake

Ariake
Named after the Ariake Sea in Southern Japan, Ariake means “daybreak” in Japanese. it symbolizes a new chapter for two furniture companies as they embark on this collaboration with international designers for the global market.


When Ariake started a few years ago now, the first collection consisted of  30 pieces, and now every year pieces are added. The Ariake collection is crafted with the best of hand and machine following typical Japanese production-processes. If you’re familiar with the typical – and incredible – Japanese joinery techniques, you’ll be so happy to find them in each and every part of the collection.

All pieces are crafted in Morodomi, Saga prefecture of Japan.

Furniture designs by Anderssen & Voll, Gabriel Tan, Keiji Ashizawa, Norm Architects, Shin Azumi, Staffan Holm, Zoe Mowat, Studio MK 27, Note design studio, Anderssen & Voll and more designers soon.

The creation of the Ariake Japanese furniture brand and furniture designs were done over two intensive workshops in Morodomi. Furniture designers, art director, photographer and craftsmen did the same: they lived, worked and ate together until the result was there.

Despite language barriers, the designers and craftsmen generated a collective energy and mutual trust that helped define the soul of the brand. This resulted in a collection of furniture that utilizes the best of hand and machine. Inspired by the spirituality of Japanese culture and urban living contexts.

Interested in becoming a retailer? Or finally found the pieces you need for your next project?

The first time we saw Ariake, was in Stockholm in the beginning of 2018. We were astonished, amazed and simply completely silent. There was an immense feeling of peace coming over us that needed no words. No explanation nor justification was needed. No questions asked. Just the enormous respect for a product, a scene or a world where everything is right. We will never forget that moment. We want to share it you so you might pass it on ever since.

LES VRAIS is honoured and proud to distribute Ariake Japanese furniture in Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Ukrain, Belarus, Russia, the UK and Ireland.
