Interview with Takayas Mizuno at Wednesday 18th of April 2012

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
TM: The design was inspired by bamboo because bamboo is hollow and I could see the two different shapes within the bamboo when cut in an angle. I used that difference within the bamboo to shape the external design.

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
TM: I wanted to achieve the hollow space as part of the main design, not the metal parts, but the hollowness-the opening.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
TM: Would like to sell the royalty rights for high-end speciality stores.

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
TM: Two to three days.

TM: Decided to pursue an inspiration.
