SENSEWARE

Wares that trigger human sensitivity and open the doors to new senses. We call this “senseware”. It is our desire to introduce a novel way to feel the presence of wind, water and light, through craft products. Our senseware which we had accomplished takes the form of a cool looking art piece that will breathe new life into our daily living which goes with the flow of nature’s constant change.

Hydrangea – Water Vessel

Toyama Prefecture

A water vessel made from handblown glass. This is a representation of the concept of “senseware” by “KORAI”. It is named after the Greek word which means water vessel. This senseware allows us to feel the wind and the light in our daily living similar to the water bowl which is often placed in a Japanese garden. By filling the vessel with water and setting it by the window, it reflects wavering water ripples on the surface it sits on and creates a pleasant time in tune with the change of nature.

Ren

Kyoto Prefecture

“Ren” is an art piece that reflects the ripple on the surface of the water and light filtering through the trees by incorporating elements of Japanese original fittings such as shoji (room divider screen made of translucent paper and wooden lattice frames) and fusuma. By placing the wooden art piece indoors, people can sense the beautiful light that filters through between the carefully assembled wooden bars, and enjoy the beautiful shade of nature in the house.
