The Whispering Wood
-Expo Between No-Longer and Not-Yet
Designer Sho Ota invites us to pause and listen to the voices of trees. He searches for the identity and beauty of the wood in his designs, not by polishing them starkly, but by carefully chiseling every knot from the flat surface. The variations reveal the voice of each piece: some objects seem to shout at us aggressively, while others whisper to their origins.
