Soichi was founded in Yokohama in 2020 as a custom-made furniture manufacturer, and although it mainly makes wooden furniture, it creates products that are not bound by the framework. While general furniture production often limits items and materials, Soichi comprehensively produce both leggings (chairs, tables, etc.) and boxes (chests of drawers, shelves, etc.).They offer a variety of materials, including decorative boards, without distinction. This is because they want to be a "resource for manufacturing" that is sensitive to the feelings of our customers and able to respond to their various requests. The company name "十一" which made of three lines embodies the philosophy of "bringing special charm to simple, universal shapes."
There are several kanji that can be applied to the word "つくる／tsukuru", and it seems that all of them apply to Soichi. They create everyday objects, both tangible and intangible, with their own hands, from small items to large pieces of furniture. The creative emotions that arouse in them lead them to the process of "creating" original furniture.
