Minimalist design philosophy


Simplicity, usefulness, undeniable beauty – this are the words that characterize Kazuhiro Yamanaka’s work in my opinion. Or “physical poetry” as ME design magazine did call it.

“Designers should contemplate the void that surrounds objects, the space between objects, and the relation between those objects. I believe furniture – chairs, tables, lights etc. – could be like a constellation of stars, and we could make lines to connect them three-dimensionally and thereby construct a specific story, As a designer, I believe it is a task to create the stories. To realize the concept effectively, I try to create a maximum impact with minimum use of material.” kazuhiro yamanaka

The flowing breeze slides down the surface of the water passing soundlessly. The area between the desk top and the curve can be utilised as a space for putting books, news papers, or clothes. A gentle curve is carefully chosen to be harmonized with breeze in the space or even music around the space.
