Italy 2015Irori & Paper cocoon
Human beings have lived always revolving around “fire.” “IRORI” is a “freehand kitchen” like a landscape, designed to live life with “fire.”
“IRORI” is composed of bamboo boards and steel pipes. Centering around “fire,” these components can make a table, bench, orshelves at your will by being extended or subtracted.
As your life expands and contracts, so does the kitchen. The white “cocoon” wrapping up “IRORI” is made of special paper called “vulcanized paper” of 1mm-thick. “The Cocoon” is generated by twisting and weaving this supple paper obi (sash). It is a starter of a new life with “fire” in the soft “cocoon” at its heart.
