Since ancient times, people have selected kimonos to suit the changing season, or have mixed incense to pervade a room for some special occasion. When doing this, they have engaged with ways to make life playful and rich. Today we do the same, by selecting products in the spirit of enjoyment, and using them to stimulate mental creativity. Such is the concept with which we start our story.
A Space for Concord/The Journey to Your Creation Flourishing Vol.2, introduces new works for 2021. We offer three collections based on the theme of that very familiar material, ‘paper’. Unique interior spaces have been devised using the motifs of traditional ink brush strokes on washi paper, or using a free assembly of rugs to suggest origami. By adding items like these to your living spaces, we hope you will find your awareness rendered more cheerful, and be liberated into a richer world of creativity.
A Space for Concord／
Origami generates limitless forms through folding sheets of paper. These rugs are inspired by that process, and allow users to create playful spaces of their own.
Each rug comes in a rich, traditional Japanese colour, so that the sets can be arranged in all manner of configurations. We’re sure you will enjoy your imagi-nation engaging with the many possibilities that their forms allow.
A Space for Silence／
These rugs create mental spaces of peace and quiet. The designs seem as if softly brushed in ink on traditional washi paper. Their jet-black, half-circles explore the concept of the new moon, so signifying a beginning or reset. Each is woven in hard-twist yarn for a rougher finish. Designs are coordinated with our other three-dimensional rugs, invoking the Zen idea of purification of mind and nature in their present states.
A Space for Prayer／
In the past origami was also called inorigami, meaning ‘paper for prayer’. This set of rugs combinestwo types, one undulating with origami motifs, and the other three-dimensional. They generate a quiet space, as when one confronts oneself in prayer.
