This project is a collaboration between Mr. Kengo Kuma and Sangetsu with the aim to go beyond typical interior design to develop products that make people feel “Human Friendly.” Mr. Kuma is renowned worldwide for his interiors, from houses to large buildings, that sublimate aesthetics into a focus on the relationship between architecture and humans. The product is more than just its appearance but also texture, depth, and atmosphere that combine to express natural power and create a new experience in indoor space.
