Meeting craftsmen in Sabae
I was working at a trading company that handles materials for eyeglasses in Sabae, which is Japan's number one producer of eyeglasses.
At that time, we co-developed “Sabae Mimi Kaki” with a company called Cement Produce, which applied materials and processing technology for glasses.
It sold a total of 40,000 books in five years, and received a great response, such as winning the "Good Design Award".
Then, I gathered seven young craftsmen of traditional arts designated in Fukui and launched "Fukui Seven Crafts of Samurai."
I am developing products that make use of traditional craftsmanship techniques.
These activities have come to be featured in various media such as the dawn of Gaia.
