JCP (Another Nature)

Milan Design Week may not have happened as planned, but I’m still making names and poetry for Italian furniture! AS A NORMAL PERSON DOES. At Fuorisalone 2020, September-October 2020, Milan.

Another Nature

Agment

A forgotten frost

On a low tide beach

Flying islands rise

Wasurejimo

Shiohigata ni

Hikonojima no josho

Agment designed by CTRLZAK.

Alweg

Burning night, cooling by day

Where your town was, bamboo groves

Phosphorescent lights

Moeru yoru, hiruma no reikyaku

Shinda machi, takebayashi–

Shiranui

Selen clear vase (Autumn)

Oldest house of leaves

Harvested fields, stars and moons rise

Mantis at the door

Ha no mottomo fumi le

Karita, hoshizukiyo

Ikichi de toro

Esker clay vase (Winter)

Compact frozen ground

Pluck a withered, perfect branch

Old calendar, futures past

Todo, kan no mizu

Uragare, kanpekina, sorera o tsureru

Furugoyomi, mirai wa kakodesu

Eretuf and Tufure rugs (Monsoon)

Under this soft place

The bones of leviathans

From unseen futures

Kono basho no shita ni

Karst Library (Moonson)

These old travellers’

Dream-tracks made mountains and caves

Artificial moon

Sorera no kodai ryoko-sha

Yume no ato, dokutsu ya yama o tsukeru

Shogatsu
