ARKITEKTURA - Fine Design and Quality Manufacturing Since 1983

THE MICHAEL GRAVES "KYOTO" COLLECTION

A leading practitioner and theorist of postmodern architecture, Michael Graves has established himself as one of our country's leading architects. Having taught at Princeton University since 1962, Mr. Graves has produced both noted individual homes as well as large mixed-use projects. More recently, he has been highly-praised for the San Juan Capistrano, California public library, the Humana Building in Louisville, KY, as well as the Swan and Dolphin Hotels at Walt Disney World. His popularity has led him to design not only building but fabrics, furniture and stage backdrops as well.

In 1990, this architect offered his first major furniture collection through Arkitektura. "I wanted this furniture to be without decoration, deriving its interest instead from proportions ... The design elements of the furniture were combined in a number of ways, giving variety and life to the entire collection. It was intriguing to discover such variety in the combination of simple, basic forms", Mr. Graves stated in 1990. This extensive collection - comprised of seating, tables, casegoods, beds and lighting - has been warmly received in both corporate and residential installations. As the exclusive license manufacturer of this product, we are proud to offer these future classic in a wide range of wood veneers and custom finishes.
