Hineri Object Lighting by Yukari Sato

Home > Winners > #77548


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Hineri

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Object Lighting

INSPIRATION:
I started making paper by hand when I questioned about mass production and consumerism. Nowadays, as mechanization accelerates in the manufacturing industry, we have been experiencing the loss of craftsmanship. However, I believe we can combine the benefits of traditional techniques with the latest technologies, and pass on the classic artistry and materials to future generations through creations that fit our modern lives.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
For this work, paper threads were attached to a delicate wooden frame, made by a local craftsman who has the traditional skills, and produces items for shrines and temples, and the joint parts are a titanium outputted by the 3D printer. Washi was thinly applied in layers to this many times to make it translucency. The fiber spreads randomly on the hyperbolic paraboloid strings, expressing the ambiguity of humans and our ambiguous coexistence with technology.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Developed new style of Japanese washi paper which do not block the flow of air, share the space with the Japanese sensitivity of "ambiguously". Its sheerness allows just the right amount of view, sound, and silhouette to be seen and felt through the paper, expressed as a delicate and beautiful shadow. We hope that the concept is reflected through our works and that our decorative art pieces help people realize such philosophy in their everyday lives.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2016 in Ehime and finished in March 2017. It was exhibited in Tokyo at LEXUS NEW TAKUMI PROJECT in January 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The production of Hineri starts with building the delicate wooden frame. A smooth surface is created with thin lines of threads and the papermaking process is repeated many times by dipping it into the water tank containing special bark fiber of mulberry which was developed with a research institution to heighten the dehumidifying and deodorizing functions. Clear groundwater called Kannon sui is used for my washi making, and was selected as one of the hundred exquisite waters of Japan.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Materials and techniques used Materials: Paper mulberry, nylon, cypress Techniques: Washi-suki/paper-making technique/, 3D design, 3D printing, laser cutting, woodworking/by Japanese craftsman/

TAGS:
washi , paper , 3d , lighting , wood

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Hineri, or twist, is a Japanese term that expresses a spirally bent shape. Metaphorically, it can also mean witty, humorous, creativity, ingenious, or intellectual. The artwork changes its look by being placed in various ways on the triangular LED light guide plate stage. It symbolizes that the world is multidimensional and ambiguous, and encourages three-dimensional perception. We tried to draw a future in which we interact through intelligence such as humor, creativity, and ingenuity.

CHALLENGE:
Incorporated 3D technology and digital fabrication into the handicraft production process, with the challenge to make full use of each technique. In this project, we considered the relationship between manual work and incorporation of the latest technology, while evaluating how the use of latest technology can promote the improvement of human creativity instead of taking away work from people as often expected.

NAME:
Yukari Sato

PROFILE:
Worked as fashion model in London and Tokyo. After graduating from Kuwasawa Design Institute, started making “washi” (handmade Japanese paper) in hometown which is famous for washi production for over 400 years. Present atelier was established in 2012. Washi is created using Kannon spring water, one of the famous 100 waters of Japan. Bring innovation into washi, while respecting traditional papermaking techniques and appreciating the lifestyle and sensibilities of the Japanese who use the “fleeting” material as a partition between inside and outside. Zeolite washi was developed with a research institution to heighten the dehumidifying and deodorizing functions while still keeping a thin and light texture to the paper, and making paper using paper threds into strings attached to wooden frames. These original washi creations are supplied domestically and abroad to decorate stores and hotels etc. Exhibited in London 2017. In recent years, I have collaborated on many three-dimensional works, and focussing on the possibilities of the craft and digital fabrication.
