Here are the details from Ibaraki:


Line
Design: Chicako Ibaraki

I saw a line of light shine in, through a small window.
It was simple, clear and sharp. The room’s stillness was created by the light.
I wanted to capture the line of the light.

The light source is an LED lamp it makes the whole diffuser glow.
The high luminescence provided by the LED lamp output allows for lower power consumption and creates a more sustainable light’s life.

Two flat bars running perpendicular at right angles create a bookshelf. The irregular braiding shape changes when viewed from different angles.

This bookshelf made of rubber painted stainless steel. Rubber paint prevents slipping books. The bookshelf make it possible to put 200 books.

    Saw this stuff last year…. it's still beautiful. (can we see more of the stool?)

    I think the world can really learn how to make interesting objects that last from the Japanese. Novel, yet enduring – that's a bit Zen no?

    Congratulations.
