About This Project

People’s life in cities is often too much exhausted, extreme, fast and superficial.
A project to use interior design as a collection of variables to create a slow indoor experience of progressive consciousness.
Working on initial eyes inability to perceive dark spaces, a path of experiences rich of symbols and neverending surprises.

THE CHALLENGE : To design every element thinking to a Masaoka Shiki’s haiku: “I bit a parsimmon / the bell tools / Horyu-ji Temple”.
The space celebrates the beauty of imperfect, humble and unconventional things, according to Japanese culture and wabi sabi thought.
The need to create a physical model to fully experience sensations, in despite of the reduced scale.
A 3D rendering model, in this case, would never have been so powerful.
