These concepts are the five pointers we’ve identified over many years of comparative study of Eastern and Western design and they equate to the five fingers of the creator. The first finger, Space Rhythm / Microcosm, expresses the idea that the universe and nature are all around us and that we are part of them. The concept of design is to feel the rhythm of the universe and of nature through space, from the furniture to the accessories you design. The second finger, Sensescape / Earth/ tactile, is a concept derived from the Japanese tradition of taking off one’s shoes and sitting down on the floor. Since we were born from the earth and have grown from the benediction of the earth, this concept underscores the desire to maintain contact with the earth, the desire to come together and the importance of the sensation of touch. The third finger, Emotional Island / relationship, is a design concept in which Sukiya = empty space in Japanese architecture, as mentioned previously, can be used to create alterations, timescales and places according to need. The fourth finger, Unconscious Polyhedron / Hidden / unconscious, relates to the Eastern concept of space, which separates interior from exterior, “visible and hidden,” with various intermediary woven structures, such as Japanese folding screens, hanging screens, goodwill, willingness, sliding doors, porticoes and thresholds. This concept blends the multidimensional concept of space with the beauty of the multidimensional and complex modelling found in nature. The fifth finger, Leaf Solid / materiality, is a concept that shows the process from surface to solid as represented by Japanese origami, based on the comparison of East-West paper and stone. The kind of design that quite clearly adopts the opposite process to the West: point → line → plane → module is used to express Japanese artistic beauty.
