Founded in 1998, Graf is a shop and studio in Osaka that was started by six people with varied backgrounds.

Joining forces over food, clothing and housing, the six founders of Osaka’s Graf have collaborated on videos, lights, jewelry and exhibitions. They opened the shop and cafe in 1998, and have been designing for it ever since. Co-founder Shigeki Hattori explains their philosophy: “Comfortable living is realized through our senses, which means that we shouldn’t create any products that interfere with that. For instance, chairs and tables are used by people, so physical senses are reflected in their design.”
