On Honest Design - The Design Works Collection Of Keiji Ashizawa
Designer and architect Keiji Ashizawa is deeply influenced by the principles of 20th-century modernism, carrying on its spirit through user-friendly design in the everyday lives of people. Whether it be furniture or architectural design, his rational disassembling of objects into smaller elements reflects shared mutual spatial and structural concepts, despite differences in proportion and dimensions. Ashizawa combines the Arts and Crafts movement and the design-manufacture process of mass production in his quest for honest design, viewed through a 21st-century, neo-modernist lens. This book presents his prolific vision, from furniture and objects to interiors and homes.
