ABOUT

PHILOSOPHY

Have you ever slipped your arms through the sleeves of a well tailored shirt and felt a wave of comfort come over you?

Have you ever experienced a sense of reassurance as you ran your fingertips over the handrail of an old piece of furniture or staircase?

Spaces that accommodate the people who inhabit them, like a favorite item of clothing or pair of shoes.

The texture of architecture and furniture that have taken on a kind of universality, having been used by all kinds of people and withstood the test of time.

Through careful design that emphasizes touch, we create a sense of comfort borne out of harmony between the body and the environment.

肌触りのよい服に袖を通すとき、身体になじむ気持ちよさ。

使いこまれた古い家具や階段の手すりに指先で触れるとき、ほっとする安堵感。

そのような、手触りがよく丁寧なしつらえをデザインの中心に据えながら、身体と環境が調和することで生まれる心地のよさを目指して私たちは設計しています。

建築、インテリア、家具、プロダクトをベースに、設計する対象は多岐にわたりますが、一つひとつ丁寧に(遊び心やユーモアも存分に駆使して!)、建築の素材と風土の素材が共鳴し、長い時間をかけて風合いが増すような美しい空間を作りたいと思っています。

HOW WE WORK

For each of our projects, we form a small, highly-functional team with trustworthy partners.

With the greatest respect for craftsmanship, we pay close attention to the scents and sounds of each of our materials, with a keen desire to make the most of their unique characteristics.

With our partners, we strive to maintain friendships based on mutual respect and trust between people and to foster relationships that allow us to push one another to greater heights.

We also proactively embrace new technologies and believe in constantly working to refine our ideas and approaches.

私たちはプロジェクトごとに信頼できるパートーナーたちと少人数で機動力の高いチームを編成します。

クラフトマンシップに敬意を払い、素材の匂いや音の響きをに耳を傾け、持ち味を最大限に引き出すことを大切にしています。

パートーナーとは、お互いの立場を尊重し、人間的に信頼しあえる友人関係
を維持し、高め合える関係でいることを心がけています。

また、新しい技術にも積極的に取り組み、アイデアと工夫を持って常に更新していくことを目指しています。
