Our Philosophy

For a long time in Japan
there have been master craftmen
called 'MIYA-DAIKU'.
They are professional carpenters
who specialize in shrine and temple architecture.
They are highly skilled and known for making
full use of each piece of wood.
For example,
if they see a gnarled or imperfect piece of wood,
they are able to see
its full potential insted of seeing
it as a defect and throwing it away.

 

Shape determines how an item will be used.

 

I believe this is what design can do.
"Placing things where they should be"
on the assumption that necessity
would dictate its use.
Try to maximize the potential of things
within the limits of the design.

 

That is our philosophy.
