In our works, we had been using Japanese casting tech- niques that were previously unknown in the world of furniture. With its bronze cast, the leg of this table leaves a strong impression. Its surface has a vertical hairline finish, restrain-
ing the gloss while fully expressing the magnificence of the material. The organic lines add a sense of delicacy that coex- ists with the strength emanating from the body’s sculpted form.The bronze will oxidize over time. In Japan, the ephem- erality of an object that is decaying or shifting form is consid- ered beautiful. This appreciation for the value of ephemerality might stem from the Japanese mindset of accepting change as natural instead of resisting it.
