SEIKI DESIGN STUDIO

フィンランドに一年間住んでいた事がある。極夜の時期は本当に真っ暗で、外に出る気もしないから休みの日は日がな一日家の中で画面に向かっていた。その時に、足がだるくて、なにか床において足つぼ刺激する道具が作れないかと思い、スケッチを書いているうちに栗のような形が見えてきた。実際に白樺を削って作ってみたらものすごくしっくり来るツボ押しができた。日本に帰ってからいろいろな素材で作ってみているが、やはり無垢の木を削って作るmarronが一番しっくり来ている。

I once lived in Finland for a year. It was really dark during the polar night, and I didn't feel like going out, so I spent most of my days off inside the house working on my computer. I was wondering if I could make a tool to stimulate the soles of my feet on the floor, and while I was making sketches, an interesting shape appeared. I found the shape as a chesnut. Then I actually carved out a white birch and made a foot acupressure pad that fit perfectly. After returning to Japan, I have been making it with various materials, however, I feel most comfortable with the one made of wood.
