DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Shade

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Partition Shelf

INSPIRATION:
This furniture is the shelf which basde on the Shoji that is Japanese sliding doors consisting of wooden frames and thin Japanese paper. By incorporating Japanese cultural fittings into furniture and applying Washi to more familiar stuff such as wooden frame, the delicacy of each material creates a comfortable tension and warmth in the space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The materials used are soft and light cedar wood and thin and strong Japanese paper which is called Washi. Washi is pasted on the wooden frame so that you can enjoy the shadows of objects that can be seen through it or you can also enjoy by changing to the different kinds of Washi. You can also change the appearance of the shelf by creating a surface with or without Washi, or by moving the wooden frame. The unique texture or looks by using Washi produces an atmosphere that cannot be created with other materials.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
How to re-cover Washi 1. Remove the wooden frame from the shelf and fit it into the special mold. 2. Apply glue to the wooden frame. 3. Paste washi cut to the size of the wooden frame. 4. Spray water with a mist spray. 5. After drying, remove from the mold to finish.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2019 in Japan and finished December 2021 in Japan.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
By using cedar wood, which is rarely used for furniture because it is soft and easily scratched, as the main material for the shelves, and by combining cedar wood with washi, we thought of the value of using cedar wood, which is abundant in Japan. We believe that by incorporating the goodness of shoji into shelves, we can create new goodness.

CHALLENGE:
Distortion caused by the expansion and contraction of the wooden frame when replacing the Washi was an issue, but we solved it by making a special mold.We tried various types of Washi that are not used for shoji screens, but most of them can be pasted and you can enjoy using different types of paper.
