ABOUT US

LIVING SHOJI

The dynamic graphic
drawn by tradition.
It is the evolutionary “Shoji”,
brightening the quality time.

“We want a smart shoji in our living room, rather than dangling a fancy curtain.”
Ideas like these were heard from our customers, unimaginable a few decades ago. As a craftsman and a professional of fittings, we wanted to create a modern shoji that would fit our customers’ wish and the contemporary housings of today.
Bringing the traditional designs drawn on “kumiko ranma” by craftsmen long ago, from the tokonoma (Japanese alcove) to modern living rooms.
As the ultimate mixture of Japanese and European interior culture, now the shoji design enters a new era with a new style.

Features of the “Living Shoji”

  • MITSUKUDE

    MITSUKUDE

    A special workmanship seen only in high class kumiko ranma. Excellent in strength and durability, and can be arranged in various design patterns.

BORDER KUMIKO

A sharp kumiko line to decorate the wall.

In patterns drawn in kumiko ranma, traditional Japanese values such as “auspiciousness” “four seasons” “scenery” were praised.
Today, we present the Japanese tradition of kumiko in a single line, not just inheriting the techniques but also the mind. The kumiko line, invented to match modern rooms, is made of a special wooden rail and the kumiko in a set. It can be embedded into spaces as a new type of Japanese decoration. The sharp line drawn with traditional pattens fit in homes, office spaces and shops, creating a modern Japanese atmosphere.

KUMIKO RANMA

The traditional Japanese decoration “kumiko”, created by craftsmen.

In classic Japanese architecture, an alcove called “toconoma” is always set. In this very important space, the kumiko ranma is placed among with seasonal flowers and tapestries to greet guests.
Skilled craftsmen created the Japanese decoration, praising traditional Japanese values such as ”auspiciousness” “four seasons” “scenery”, and wishing the house and family’s prosperity in the coming years.
