An instrument-like “Kendama”. This Kendama is made using the technique of shamisen production that is built by hand-made processes from a single piece of wood. Kendama plays soothing sounds and rhythms while playing. I found something in common with the shamisen and designed a new kendama. This kendama has a good color and luster, and sounds good while playing, like a shamisen. The shamisen timber is sturdy and well-glossy so that it makes a good sound when playing.

CHIRI hourglass

石川県羽咋市にある、日本で唯一の車で走ることができる海岸「千里浜なぎさドライブウェイ」。 海流や地形などの自然の偶然が重なって、流れ着いた砂が細かく均質になる。その砂の大きさは通常の四分の一ほどであり、美しい砂の形状をしている。その砂を利用し、砂時計としてリデザインした。

Ishikawa Prefecture Located in Hakui-shi, Ishikawa Prefecture, it is the only coastal coast that can run by car in Japan “Chirihama Nagisa Drive Live”. The natural accident such as ocean current and topography overlap, the sand which has arrived gets fine and homogeneous. The size of the sand is about a quarter of the usual, and it has a beautiful sand shape. I exploited the characteristics of the sand and redesigned it as an hourglass.

CHIRI brooch

Works, 地場産業




A product made from the sand at Chirihama beach, where natural accident such as ocean current and topography overlapped and flowed. In Hakui City, the only one in Japan is the coast “Chirihama Nagisa Driveway” that can run by car, over 800,000 visitors a year, but it has not been linked to the local economic contribution quite often. And now, the Chirihama beach coast has three big tasks: “Revitalizing the Hakui city”, “Garbage problem”, “Erosion”. Therefore, I thought that I would like to contribute to the community by disseminating and solving three problems through producing and selling souvenirs using the sand at at Chirihama beach. Then, we launched a product brand that is “CHIRI”.

This was a single vase inspired by rice paddies, one of the original landscapes of Okuzumi. Although the shape looks like a sphere when looking from afar, you can enjoy the shadow and depth of light with a step like the rice paddies when viewed from a nearby point. The shape of this ball is derived from the fact that steel which was broken into human fist size is called “ball”, which is a word of the origin of the ball steel. By making it a sphere, it gave us a quiet presence and simplicity to complement the flowers. As for the material, it is assumed to use ball steel if procurement is possible, but substitution with iron etc. is also possible. By using pure rustless steel balls, it is difficult to break and creates a gentle single flower for both flowers and people.

SHRINKとは折りたためて、立てることができるメガネケース。蛇腹状のシリコンでできているため、簡単に折り畳むことができるようになっている。 ケースとしての機能の在り方を追求した結果、今までにないメガネケースとして新しいカタチが完成した。手でケースの両端を縦に広げるだけで、ケースとして使用できる。折りたたむことで長さが半分以下になり持ち運びが簡単になる上に、メガネスタンドとしても使うことができるようになる。フタの形状を口のような形にすることで、フタを変形させてメガネを入れやすくなっている。

SHRINK is an eyeglass case that be folded and stands up. I pursued the way of function as a case, and I designed a new form as a glasses case. Just by widening both ends of the case vertically by hand, it can be used as a case. By folding, the length is reduced to less than half, which makes it easy to carry around, as well as being able to use it as a glasses holder. By making the shape of the lid like a mouth, it became easier to put the glasses by deforming the lid. Because it is made of silicone, it can be washed with water even if it is dirty, and it is also excellent in waterproofness.

THIN Hourglass

「極限まで薄い、砂時計」 2種類の砂が織り成す流動的な模様と今までにない新しい形の砂時計を楽しめる、薄さ5㎜の砂時計。砂時計の中に2種類の砂が入っており、回転させることで落ちる砂の向きを変える。上下という従来の2方向の制約を離れ、360度角度を変えることができるので普段とは違った砂時計の表情を見ることができる。薄くすることにより軽やかさが生まれ、回転させたい形状にした。卓上型は木製の台座にある窪みに差し込むだけで使用でき、壁付型は磁石が背面についているのでキッチンや洗面所で使える。

“Extremely thin hourglass” An hourglass with a thickness of 5 mm that you can enjoy a fluid pattern that two types of sand weave and a new form of hourglass that you have never seen before. There are two types of sand in the hourglass, and changing the orientation of the falling sand by rotating it. Apart from the conventional two-way constraints of up and down, you can change the angle of 360 degrees so you can see the expression of an hourglass that is different from usual. Lightness was born by making it thinner, and it was made into a shape that I wanted to rotate. The tabletop type can be used by simply inserting it into a recess in a wooden pedestal, and the wall type can be used in a kitchen or a washroom because the magnet is on the back.

Dishes that combine the features of Negori painting and the main tower of Negoroji are our proposal. First of all, it was about the dishes we serve at the cafe of hill of historical hill of the Road Station, so I began with designing things that convey the charm and atmosphere of this area. Therefore, attention was paid to Negoro Temple which is the concept of the station on this road and thought that regionality is born by incorporating the characteristics of the National Treasures and the Great Tower. This large tower called “multi treasure tower” is a double-storied tower, with the first layer’s plane being square and the upper layer circular. And utilizing the features of this large tower, the bottom of the cup and square of the cup for roll cake etc. is square (square), the top is circular. As a result, a simple and beautiful design was born, finished in dishes with regional characteristics.

Lighting Product, Works



The concept is a pendant lighting that cuts off the moment when an apple skin is peeled off without cutting it on the way. Since the part of the peel of the apple has become a shade, it leaks light like indirect lighting. In other words, the light from the gap of the spiral shade, gently illuminates the room. Furthermore, as the gap is evenly opened up and down, left and right, the structure is such that heat is not likely to stick. This lighting consists of three kinds of parts: shade, bulb, socket & cord, and the assembly process is very simple. The shade is made from aluminum as it is soft to bend and ease to processing metallic. The aluminum plate is bended with a bending roll machine, to make the spiral of this shade. In addition, the aluminum is processed as alumite treatment to make vivid red like an apple peel on the surface.
