Teori is situated in Mabi-cho, Kurashiki City in Okayama Perfecture, an area in which a myriad of natural bamboo groves flourish. It was established in 1988, its aim being to utilize the abundance of bamboo in the area and to prove itself useful as an environmental business. Since its formation, it has focused the efforts specifically on bamboo.

Teori deals in both institutional furniture and original furniture items that highlight the processing techniques involved with laminated bamboo lumber. In recent years it has actively worked with designers who have ties to the area to create products brimming with its own personal Teori charm, along with the advancement of the technology that goes with such creation.

It endeavors to link the promotion of the region with the environmental conservation, conducting a variety of research projects focusing on bamboo. Research into the development of natural bamboo paint - excellent in terms of antibacterial and bactericidal properties - is one such project.

Teori’s collaborative designers:
Daisuke Izumi, Teppei Mihara, Hiroyuki Kato,
Haruki Senda, Yousuke Shimizu, Yusuke Tsujita.
