Chiiori lamp takes its name from the house of Alex Kerr, a traditional Japanese dwelling up in the hills of Iya Valley. Reconstructed lovingly in the exacting nature of Japanese philosophy and art.
On Shibui “It is not a beauty displayed before the viewer by its creator... viewers must seek out the beauty for themselves. As taste grows more refined we will necessarily arrive at the beauty that is Shibui.”

Art! that is a great thing, when it exists. Today this art does not exist. The fragmented tendencies can only find their way back to a single unity under the wings of a new architecture, with each individual dicipline playing its part in the building process. Then there will be no division between the applied arts and sculpture or painting; everything will be one: Architecture.
