Traditional and Advanced 

The Japanese traditional way of joinery is called “Hozogumi”. Also the handcrafted curved style that brings out the wood’s beauty is called “ Sashimono”. By using both “Hozogumi” and “Sashimono” methodologies, the wood will become stronger and the natural flexibility of the wood will create a free unforced piece of art.

Special Tool “Kan-na”

I use a technique of sculpture for creating maximum fit with the human body. This method uses over 300 small handmade planes called “Kanna”. The “Kanna” can create delicate and complicated three-dimensional curves for the chair.
