Floor Concept

Enjoy the modern design of Kyoto with a moment of peace and hospitality.

  • Speaking of the Koto / Kyoto, there are many people who envision a culture like a luxurious Makie-style like a modest fabric.But the beauty of the townscape in Kyoto is functional, it is only in the space suitable for calling modern.
    For example, it reflects the light leaking from the 1,000 Senbon-Goushi, lattice of evenly spaced vertical timber bars regularly arranged townscapes, shadows of joiners and pillars stuck with light rhythm.The skeleton of Kyoto, which also leads to contemporary modern design, is extremely reasonable and unique space beauty.
    Modern = beyond modernity, universal = universal, world-class Japanese, in the hospitality of Kyoto design.

LIGHT

With the theme of Kacho Fugetsu, with praise to the natural world

  • Japanese traditional culture must be in Japanese paper.Among Japanese paper, the climate of Japan and the sensibility of craftsmen are breathing.
    Washi paper which is moist like a human skin and makes it feel breathing will make light pass through and will produce a more affluent time in the hospitable space wearing a rich and soft impression on its presence .

    1976 Born in Kanagawa Prefecture
    2000 Graduated from Kyoto Seika University Faculty of Art, Textile Kyoto Seika University Faculty of Art
    2008 Tsuki Akari Design Laboratory Opening Tsuki Akari Design Laboratory

    Since I noticed that the atmosphere of the space changes completely with just one light production, I have been producing space production and objects using lights since 2001 with the theme of "creating a comfortable space".
    2008 Opened “Tsuki Akari Design Laboratory” in Ajiki Roji Alley, Kyoto Higashiyama. He has worked on order lighting using various materials, and in recent years has been focusing on lighting using Japanese paper with original design woodblock printing.

Hagidori(Room 812 King Double Room)

MONKATA(Room 808 Large Twin)

  • The material of the wall lighting work in Room 808 is Nishijin-ori, Mongami, which is representative of Kyoto textiles.
    Crest paper is a punch card used in jacquard looms.The weaving machine is controlled by the position of the hole, and complex symbols are woven, but usually one thousand sheets of crest paper are used in one belt.In the case of more precise and precise designs it is not uncommon to have tens of thousands of graphics.
    There are many itineraries that can be daunting to complete a piece of textile, all of which require skilled craftsmanship.However, as digitization has progressed in all fields, looms using crest paper have become extremely rare.
    I came across this paper pattern at the edge.I felt the light coming out through a slightly changing hole very comfortable while keeping order rhythmically when I held it over my hand.The crest itself becomes a gentle shadow and snuggles closer to the light, spreading the space deeper and deeper.I was so excited to touch the heart of the work that was brought up in Nishijin, and it developed into such a lighting setting.
    I would be very happy if the materials that have accumulated the climate and history of this area can provide a peaceful space for the evening of the trip.
