Canuch has created a furniture series that explores a Japanese tradition rooted in the landscape and preserved through the centuries.
The series was conceived with a view to gaining a deeper understanding of noyaki, a millennia-old annual tradition of burning the Aso grasslands to ensure their preservation, taking place in Minami-Oguni town where Fil is based.
The collection features a contrast between different materials, combining a steel frame with charred cedar inspired by the inky black landscape of the area. Production is limited to 25 units sold annually, a number is based on the 25 Oguni cedar saplings which were granted in the Edo period to grow forests.
