Seikatsu Kogei

As interest grows in living a richer, more enjoyable life, something called "Seikatsu Kogei" - lifestyle or living crafts - have gained increasing attention. These crafts that are not traditional handcrafts, nor mass produced wares, are imbued with the spirit of their makers, who in a typically Japanese way, create by hand, select materials with care and aim to come up with new designs suited to contemporary lifestyles. We welcome as our studio guest, woodwork designer, Ryuji Mitani, to explore the roots of the beauty that dwells in form.
