Ganko Oyaji and Phiten
When Ganko Oyaji heard that Phiten (a world-renowned health company in Japan) is making mattresses and other beddings, they wanted to collaborate with them and build furniture that would take advantage of the health benefits these Phiten products provide. This started the Ganko Oyai + Phiten collaboration.
The two companies worked together to build exceptional furniture that is not just long-lasting but could also have health beneficial effects to the user. They decided to use camphor – a tree native to Japan – as the material for these pieces of furniture because of its relaxing aroma that lasts forever.
