“The clarity of vertical and horizontal; beauty present within things of no significance: one of the main features of Japanese design is the clear interconnection of vertical and horizontal. The Japanese aesthetic is present in design that achieves fullness by virtue of its simplicity. Tools entrusted with feelings and thoughts inherited from the past also seem to be imbued with the profound aesthetic awareness unique to the Japanese people.
The Japanese aesthetic and the archetypal image of Japan as they exist for me are present in my memory. Tracing this memory back, I return to the sensation of wood that I experienced when I was a child.
I still remember today after so many years the sensation of touching the planking of the open veranda of a dilapidated temple, the warped, rounded panels with their surfaces worn away with the years, and the gaps between the panels. Chairs are manifestations not just of the visual aesthetic: the tensile sensation is also an important aspect of their aesthetic.
Chairs are tools for everyday life that one should be able to use for many years with a sense of love and attachment, and I have therefore taken great care with the materials, making use of the feel and texture of pure and unadulterated oak.”
