Craftsman and designer Masashi Ifuji specialises in creating simple but functional wooden objects, utilising traditional techniques and minimal forms.
Based out of Matsumoto, Nagano prefecture, Ifuji is best known for his classic oval boxes, made by hand in the same time-honoured method used by the Shaker communities of 18th century colonial America. The simplicity of form and concise design has earned Ifuji high praise and his works have been exhibited in spaces across Japan. His clean and precise designs allow the user to appreciate the moments of stillness found in daily life; offering a small piece of calm retreat amid our busy existences.
Form and function seamlessly cohabitate, allowing for Ifuji products to become essential objects for everyday living.
