Design Year

The renowned Japanese architect drew his inspiration from a technique for preserving construction timber by charring its surface, known in Japan as Shou-Sugi-Ban or Yakisugi.‎ This ancient technique uses charring wood as means to preserve it without the need of painting or sealing, an aspect leading to the current revival of this technique in eco-friendly architecture.‎ Adapting this process to the centuries-old glass craft technique enabled a contemporary design that is unique for every single piece of hand-blown glass.‎
The tableware collection titled Yakisugi designed for Lasvit follows the success of previously introduced lighting collection and focuses on the organic beauty of this crackled burned-wood texture.‎ Kengo Kuma explains “The idea behind Yakisugi collection is about questioning the materiality of glass and natural wooden texture.‎ My intention was to plumb the depth of the wooden soul, captured inside the glass.‎ ”
The wood leaves a permanent imprint of its scorched texture on the glass surface, making each piece an authentic original.‎ This slight modification to a centuries-old technique produced a modern and minimalistic collection that combines simple geometric forms with unusual organic textures.‎
