My Space

Where I can be myself.

Japan has a hot spring culture.
In this place, the tiredness of everyday life is washed away in hot water.
It is a healing break from hectic everyday life.
Japan has a tea ceremony culture.
The tea culture, shaped by Sen no Rikyu in the 16th century, was an extraordinary space. The samurai fight to the death every day, and so the tea ceremony played a very important role in maintaining peace of mind.
I believe that modern everyday life is similar.
I believe that modern people have a hectic life
leads to a lack of time to deal with yourself and allow yourself to rest.
In contrast to modern people, who spend their evenings in brightly lit rooms, in this room they are confronted with themselves in dim light.

The space focuses on a contemporary reduction of an ancient culture.
The “eyes” were inspired by the culture of calligraphy and incorporated elements of that culture.

The movements of the tea ceremony were simplified to make them less difficult and more casual. The yukata she wears is made from three bath towels and four face towels. Traditional Japanese “Washi” is a combination of square pieces of fabric that are disassembled and carefully washed.

It is a way of treating things with great care and can be used for a long time. When they are no longer used as clothing, they can now be used as towels.

This is a concept that should be valued in today’s environmentally conscious world.
