Landscapes of Fellowship

The relationship between objects and space in Japan is summarized in the construction of this relationship, which emphasizes harmony and accentuates the environment. Indirect and creative approaches to allow views of the four seasons, the ways materials are used and closed. These are messages that convey the difficulty and awe of coexisting with nature, and are a cultural sense of nature unique to Japan. People, objects, and space all become one single landscape.

less is more.

My approach is take away unnecessary elements from what already exists and make everything simple
through expressions and styles that are close to zero without limit, rather than adding
elements to something and embellishing fixtures to bring out their character.

When applied to one’s lifestyle, this does not mean cramming furniture or other objects in the home so as to decorate,
but rather by placing truly good things and prized objects where they should be,
it becomes easy to tell what is important and what should be done.

I often hear the word “minimalism” lately,
but I believe this is not just a passing trend
but a concept that is easy to grasp in this modern age full of stuff.

Perfection is achieved when there is nothing to take away.

In modern society, where the meaning of happiness and the concept of values are rapidly changing,
perhaps we are reaching an time where were place great value on emotional and experiential things
rather than bringing richness to our lives through physical objects and money.

Perhaps selecting only that which is truly essential and cutting back on personal belongings is connected to living a more creative life.
