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|
