Net by design collective Numen consists of multiple layers of flexible nets suspended in the air. The flat layers of the net are subsequently connected to one another on counterpoints thus forming a “floating landscape” open for visitors to climb in and explore. The result is an op-art social sculpture (or a community hammock) relating to topics of instability, levitation and regression.
Japanese design studio mute believes in producing products that are ordinary tools used in daily life,
not creating for decoration or solely for use on a special day. their project ‘soji’ explores the craft traditions
of yamanaka-shikki (japanese lacquer ware) and the development of this technique that is focused on the
technology of making great wooden objects.
‘soji’ is a series of daily use items which exhibit the natural beauty of the wood in which they are made.
yamanaka is famous for its carving wheel called ‘rokuro’, which was used to produce the collection
of housewares that consists of sara (plate), hako (stacking case), wan (bowl), tutu (canister).
each piece is made from sen (castor aralia) and is produced by unomatudo.
