Japanese designer Daisuke Kitagawa presented a collection of objetcts titled “Tolerance” during a recent edition of DESIGNTIDE Tokyo. Using common everyday objects, Daisuke altered the wares with pieces of wood to create new, practical pieces.

By observing the similarity in the diameter of various objetcts, Daisuke formulated new wooden components that could easily be attached to any kind of product that followed a standard size. A cup becomes a pencil sharpener, a glass turns into a vase, and a container into a plant pot — these are just some of the new objects derived from the reinterpretations.

“Tolerance” explores the meaning of objects through new functions and different applications that draw upon old forms.
