The Japanese name chosen for the collection does not translate into one particular word but, rather, a ﬂeeting image, an impalpable atmosphere created by “the reﬂection of light on water”. A sheet of glass crafted in a thickness of one centimeter, whose shape recalls that of a leaf or a boat slightly tilted by the wind, appears to be suspended over a dainty base consisting of a series of metal rods, intersected on the shorter side to form a slender trestle. The sunlight seems to traverse it gracefully.
Its inspiration stems from a visit to Japan.
The sober rituals, the quiet gestures, the architecture of sacred places and even simple table settings all speak of lightness and perfect harmony. Hence a project which plays with challenging proportions and a delicate compositional balance. The two elements, container and base, are distinct yet united by means of a simple gesture, requiring no screws or fasteners.
