Fantasia

since2018

Bruno Munari's Fantasia, published in 1977, has been an indispensable volume for most anyone who studies art and design.
Through this book, the distinguished master of design Munari affectionately and accessibly imparts the importance of thoroughly observing your environment and possessing a perspective for making the world a more interesting place.

In 2018 the theme for DESIGN SOIL is "Fantasia".
With the upcoming 20th anniversary of Mr. Munari's passing, we pay our respects to this grand master, and introduce works generated from the observations of daily life - in conjunction with chapters from Fantasia.

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.
