Jo Nagasaka at Milan 2011


Jo Nagasaka, founder of Schemata Architecture Office, Tokyo, exhibited resin and untreated wooden tables at Spazio Rossana Orlandi during Milan 2011.

The designer uses a semi-opaque, brightly coloured epoxy resin to fill the irregularities of wooden panels which act as table tops for a reimagining of a traditional Japanese low table called a hassoku dai. The opacity of the colour relies on the depth of the cavity it fills, leading to unpredictable but beautiful results.
