Project

GOOD LACK

since2017

For most objects in our daily lives, "lack" and "loss" are not particularly welcome.
However, just as one can find a new use for a broken rod, we are sometimes able to find new value from loss.
Maybe it's the forming of a hole or the base of something becoming disconnected—this world is full of opportunities that we only notice once something is lost.
The collection "GOOD LACK" searches for new uses for items with missing parts and seeks to present new possibilities for a variety of furniture.
Through a change in perspective, we hope to bring happiness to your daily lives.
Good lack!

Geography

since2016

Just like natural terrain is, furniture brings ups and downs in space and guides our regular behavior and daily scenery as geographical features of living.

If there is a new terrain in living, it will be a new possibility for ways of editing space.

In the collection “Geography,” we propose the works which provide new geographical characteristics into space, understanding the relationship between furniture and surrounding with look of like a geographer who has an eye to both nature and living in each place.

boundary

since2015

We live in a world of countless tangled things, many of them share a line or surface with each other while there are boundaries separating them and giving them their distinctive shapes.

By creating these boundaries between things is how we try to acquire knowledge about the world. Thus, whether they are real or virtual lines made by our imagination, It is somehow these boundaries that are constructing the outlines of the world we know.

But what are these boundaries? What is happening there and what can be created there? The boundary lines have width and if looked at closely, these boundary surfaces have thickness and inside these spaces between different objects, something must be happening.

We try to look inside these boundaries and create furniture and interior elements inspired by what is happening there.
