TSUYAMA FURNITURE

杉・桧の産地である岡山県津山市の企業と連携して制作したファニチャーシリーズ。針葉樹の木肌の美しさを損なわないよう、シンプルな造形と面の構成でデザインしている。柾目を揃えたり、継ぎ方を工夫して強度を確保したりと見えないところでの工夫を施しており、職人技を活かしながらも、まるで針葉樹の森に囲まれているかのような優しい空気感を作り出す。国産材を使用し、新たな循環を生み出せればと思う。

This is a series of furniture produced in collaboration with a company in Tsuyama city, Okayama prefecture, where cedar and cypress are produced.The design is based on simple shapes and surfaces, in order to keep the beauty of the softwood surface. The fine details could be found on invisible features such as perfectly arranged directions of the wood fibres on the surface and the quiet yet robust joints. While making use of the skills of local craftsmen, it creates a gentle atmosphere as if surrounded by a coniferous forest. By using domestic timber, we hope to create a new cycle of timber in Japan.
