Milan Design Week

APRIL 2011



「本来、私達が向かうべき所はいったいどこなのだろうか?」 そう考えた時、それは自然の姿に戻ること、自然に帰る事ではないかと思うのです。 すべては自然から生まれ、やがて自然へと帰る。それは自然の摂理でもあります。 様々な所で自然と深く結びついている日本文化。 だからこそ、自然の素材、質感、色彩、陰影などにも日本的感覚を見ることが出来る。そんな自然と深く結びついた日本文化の特徴を家具を通して表現してみました。

日本で古くから用いられている、木材を積み上げた建築構造物であり、また、祭事や遠方を見るための塔、或いは技法の名称としても使われ、一つの日本文化の特徴を現したものと言えます。 この、自然の素材を使った、昔からある技法によって家具を作成しました。


For the sixth consecutive year, Garde participated at Milan Design Week, the world’s largest furniture fair. Garde presented a new furniture collection called "Nature Comes Alive", designed with a wood-weaving technique called “Yagura” for renowned Italian furniture producer, Emmemobili.


Our modern lifestyles have a profound impact on the environment in which we live. Our planet is being exploited to its limits. It seems that mother earth must adapt to our rhythms and choices, while we conveniently disregard the consequences our actions have on the environment. Perhaps we should learn to understand and support the earth’s characteristics and try to live in harmony with them. In the end, as does everything that surrounds us, we too are born from nature and will rejoin her at the end of our journey.

Japanese culture is based on the relationship between man and nature. This can be seen in our choice of materials and colors and use of light and shade. Yagura, a method of weaving wood, was conceived from this reconciliation with nature. Yagura is deeply rooted in Japanese culture and was historically used as a construction technique for building temples, where sacred rites which combine spirituality and nature were customarily performed. Because of its cultural significance to Japanese culture, we represented Yagura in our design, choosing to express natural elements and traditional techniques in a contemporary manner.
