Featuring bright clashing colors and bold geometric forms, the cartoonish cabinet designs are named the Nakano Twins after the Nakano Broadway mall in Tokyo.

The four-storey shopping center is famous in the city for its many shops that sell anime items, video games, manga, and animation character figurines.

Furman told in an interview: “The Nakano Twins are a pair of furniture units designed to be as full of personality as cartoon characters – voluble, talkative little members of the household that bring as much animation to the spaces they are in as a happy pet, or a boisterous toddler.”

He continued: “The Twins are dressed-up in their favorite costumes, and are naughtily hybrid in their use, following their owners around their office or apartment on their little orange wheels, offering to drink stands, bedside tables, office storage, or just a handy colorful, loyal domestic companion.”

“The units are made in London, inspired by Tokyo, and are totally 100% Kawaii,” added Furman, referring to the culture of cuteness in Japan.
