'Tr/Sq/Rh' accessory cases and pen stands by Nosigner

The young Japanese architect Nosigner recently showcased ‘AWA’, a new range of furniture he created in collaborative work with Tokushima based traditional Japanese craftmanship. Like his previous works this collection shows as well Nosigner´s focus on the cultural background of his pieces. The craftmanship, the material or the apperance – all his works subtly contain some tradiational, original Japanese aspects.

“‘Tr/Sq/Rh’ is a series of products of accessory cases and pen stands. Their shapes are triangle, square and rhombus. Each box has magnet on sides and by combining a few of them, you can make a geometrically beautiful shape autonomously and make larger structure as if material structures combined with a few of elements to be seen in chemical formula.” Nosigner says.

“SQUARES are accessory cases which were designed by these rectangle. The surface was polished by piano finish with sheepskin, which is a unique technique of making traditional mirror stand in Tokushima prefecture, Japan. Whole drawers of SQUARES are not open until the center drawer is open. This is a traditional trick used for Japanese drawer.”
