The product offers new communication between humans and books.
The LED is turned on when books are put on the product.
This prototype is made by acrylic glass. Originally, the surface is sopposed to be coated by sumi paint, so that the product has a function of cleaning air.

This is the bookend which is like a lighting, This is the lighting which is like a bookend.





This product can be used in a kitchen, in a bedroom beside a bed, etc....
and you can put an alarm clock or a coffee cup as well insted of putting books.
This is a design which is suitable for various situations.



Hello, this is Tetsuo.

Our exhibition was finished 27th April.
We finished it relating with next one in this time.

I exhibited two works for this project.
「A lighting and a bookend」

The name of the product is ONDO.
The product is designed warmth of a living nest with bamboo charcoals which are born from nature.Bamboo charcoals brings infrared rays effect which is mild for our body when the product is turned on,and the material adjust humidity and deodorize a room by being used as a ceiling light with bamboo charcoals which have high effect of charcoal.

The gray charcoals heated has silver gloss which is like metal on the surface.
When i thought the concept of the product, I had an image that those materials between a lighting and a character of the material, light match in my mind.
Shadow effect come out on a wall give us relaxing space as if we are covered by a nest.

This product is near to art works rather than works which can be made by mass production.
In this time, I've got a lot of things through making ONDO and the exhibition.

I really appriciate many people who supported the exhibition and team members too.

I realized just now....

Hello, this is Tomoko.

Do you notice what i make ? is also not good weather. It's cloudy.

My respiratory organs is not so strong, so if weather or atmosphere pressure change, my breath is disturbed by them. (I think it's understandable for those who have same diseace)

This is the time that i have to make effort....!!

I'm so irritated...!!

sorry for complaining.

I guess refreshing Tomoko will wtire a refreshing article on this blog tomorrow.

I hope it's also going to be refreshing weather tomorrow!!

Our logo completed!

Hi, this is Tomo.

It has been past just a week since i wrote on this blog last time.
the time is really flying.
I feel like before we know it, it would be the day of milano salone.
and, i think about sumi in my mind more and more......
but, i'm not tired of sumi. I think it's fascination of sumi.

now, as i told you our logo last week, we did fine adjustment for layout and size.
This work was tough work more than i thought.....

but, finally, our logo was completed.

Today is a first week after it's turned summar time.
I wonder if many people mistake their time when they go to school or work ?
