「A design office close to the town and its people.」The roots of TRUNK DESIGN started with this desire here at the Tarumi office and store. This space serves as a base for the creative work of the staff but also a place open to the community, showcasing the products created by TRUNK DESIGN.
After spending some time getting to know the stories behind our products, why not visit some of the staff's favorite Tarumi spots? It is sure to make your trip to Kobe a memorable one.
Located in a secluded sloping alleyway between the sea and the mountains, this cafe and store is a hidden gem. Savor menus created to celebrate local ingredients while enjoying browsing through the products created by TRUNK DESIGN.
Experience Kobe life, colored with soft light and a gentle breeze, and feel the craftsmanship made with local spirit.
In a space revitalized from a century-old traditional house in Kobe's Shioya four delightful elements coexist: an independent shop, a printing factory, a cafe, and a bookstore.
Inside the shop you can find prototypes of products developed with TRUNK DESIGN, giving you a peek of the behind-the-scenes processes involved in production.
In the workshop you can also create your own original items with the help of craftspeople using various machines such as letterpress, laser cutter and foil-stamping machines.
