For the Japanese, who would often sleep in the same room and they used for living and dining in the daytime, the lightweight, four-legged structure of the Zen was well-adapted to the Japanese way of life. Amongst the tea ceremony utensils, there are beautiful sake cups called Sakazuki-dai. Aside from their beauty as sake cups, the cups also have graceful, refined Japanese forms. To transform the shape of beautiful sake cups into furniture, we took inspiration from the creation of a traditional craft deeply rooted in Japanese life. We believe that, beyond producing new designs, it is also important to adopt beautiful, existing Japanese forms and reconsider them for harmonious existence with modern spaces.
