"CONCEPT"
NOT Waste, Up-cycled to modern with ideas from old Japanese pieces
A large number of interior furniture, especially chests of drawers "TANSU" which have a history of decades to 100 years under the command of "Western style minimalism" are being discarded in modern times in Japan.
Although it is originally a product that shines with craftsmanship such as woodworking, metal fittings, and painting (lacquer), it is discarded in large quantities because it does not fit the modern lifestyle.
We have begun efforts to pass on the craftsmanship and traditions to the next generation by Up-cycling, paying respect to the old work of Japan.
We update the good things made in the past to the modern lifestyle and keep people using them. Proposing one of the actions to approach the realization of a sustainable society.
The "TANSU" chest is a piece of furniture that can be used for the next 100-200 years. What we can do now in a modern age full of things We hope that this work will give you an opportunity to think about sustainability.

"STORY"
Since the 1980s, the lifestyle has changed drastically and became uniform in Japan, and nowadays, the unique traditions and culture of Japan are no longer needed in the living space and are abandoned.
One of the symbolic items is "TANSU" (chest of drawers).
From the latter half of the Edo period (mid-19th century), furniture "TANSU" chests for storing kimonos have spread all over Japan.
However, clothes gradually became widespread from the Meiji era (early 20th century), and in the latter half of the 20th century, kimono gradually disappeared as everyday wear.
And nowadays, Japanese people rarely wear kimono.
And with the decline of kimono, the "TANSU" chest that stores it also declined in the same way.
In modern Japan, closets are widely used instead of chests of drawers, as in other countries around the world.
