Japanese balance & simple style
Balance, simple lines, honest materials like stone, linen, paper, clay and rattan are the very essence of a simple Japanese home. In Japan, it's not all about excessive decoration, but simplicity of design, symmetry and respect for nature are core values. Since the 20th century, Nordic and Japanese design have been the subject of mutual inspiration in spite of their geographical distances. Art, architecture, design and interior decor find inspiration in craftsmanship, detail, colours and forms, giving our homes a calmer and more aesthetic composition. Durability and reflection have become the new order of the day!
Inspiration from nature
Nature is often an inspiration for design. Architects and designers take turns experimenting and considering the fluid transitions between inside and outside environments. Large windows invite the untouched, wild nature inside, or elements of nature are used in designs that suit our homes and tastes. If we look closely at Japanese culture and rich craftsmanship traditions, we can clearly see it is based on that very relationship between humans and nature. Nature is full of contrasts - the irregular and asymmetric, the wild beauty and harmonious relations. It is particularly in this dynamic that balance and inspiration are created.
