Carefully Hand-Crafted Furniture and Kitchenware from Japan
Original in Berlin presents Hokuto Sekine, a young upcoming Japanese designer specialized in wooden kitchenware and furniture. A straightforward approach to design with clear shapes and natural materials define the look of Sekine's hand-crafted items. Aside from their calm, pristine aesthetics the hand-crafted items also stand out due to their high-quality materials and Sekine's elaborate workmanship. The use of rare wood types such as Japanese zelkova or Japanese mountain cherry emphasizes the artist's focus on her home country and its abundance in rare, beautiful raw materials.
