Furoshiki (風呂敷) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth traditionally used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. It began to be used in the mid-Nara Era, in traditional Japanese baths (Onsen), to not confuse or mix the clothes. In recent years, the use of Furoshiki is promoted again, to ensure environment protection in Japan and worldwide.
Through this project, there is an intention of giving a new perspective to the wood material, with the aim to create a foldable surface out of wood, which can perform in different three-dimensional shapes and function as furniture and interior space product. The material ranges between hard and soft, seating and curtain, blurring relationships between furniture and textiles, becoming a ‘Wooden Furoshiki’.View Project Files
