Yokota Wood Work Co., Ltd.
We are the only desk specialist among Okawa furniture manufacturers.
We are a desk manufacturer based in Okawa city, Fukuoka prefecture. Okawa city is known for its furniture. We plan, design and produce various desks from household writing desks to executive room desks for offices. We have designed a unique desk, called the Tatamundes that can be folded up when not in use. When folded, it is only 18.5 cm deep so it fits easily in a small room, like a studio apartment. Storage racks designed inside the desk can store up to 30 paperback books, some magazines, and a laptop. It is ingeniously designed, winning a prize in the 16th Fukuoka Design Award. We plan to strengthen its sales in commercial facilities and economy hotels.

[Industry] Wood furniture manufacturing [Representative's message] Cheap products from overseas and competition among manufacturers has caused a price war in the furniture retail market. We are excel at study desks, but few households have a study today. We should respond to this changing living environment. Tatamundes can be placed anywhere and folds compactly, so it utilizes space effectively. We have made breakthrough proposals for new life-styles with this product. Sales of the Tatamundes have shown us the exciting potential outside of household use. We will positively approach prospective markets to expand our sales.
