Akira Shoji

Sashimono-Shi (joiner)

In Japan, there is a traditional technique in making furniture, called "Sashimono". "Sashimono" is the technique by joining pieces of wood without using any nails. Akira Shoji produces beautifully delicate furniture and tableware by using this technique. He reads the grains of the natural wood and creates deep hues by finishing them by Urushi/Japanese lacquer. He says; “I hope that user enjoys using the products in daily life”.
