Koyori, an all-new Japanese design brand, is debuting at the Art & Design Museum Triennale Milano.
More than 1,000 years ago, the dimensions of the Japanese Yumi, or longbow, was finalized. The size was fixed at a little more than two meters and the use of laminated construction was agreed upon. In the 1600s, after hundreds of years of tweaking, the final design was agreed upon, and, to this day, the bow is made from a two-piece bamboo and wood laminated construction.
Exhibition celebrates the resilient spirit of Japanese architecture and craftsmanship through woodworking tools, architectural patterns, and models.
Building Without Nails: The Genius of Japanese Carpentry is a 25 minute documentary on New York City's Miya Shoji, a traditional Japanese woodshop in the heart of Manhattan. Owners Zui Hanafusa and his father show their techniques.
