“NOBUKI HIZUME” is a talented new comer introduced in media including “Souen” magazine and even recognized by the Agency for Cultural Affairs. Currently, he has studied in Paris since 2008 as a member of the Japanese Government Overseas Study Program for Artists. The so-called emerging head piece creator’s works, unlike just another consumer product, aim to be like an eternal living organism, his presentation is intended to be an object d’art as it is. Its beautiful figure embodies both formative and architectural elements, and its originality catches a viewer’s mind at sight. There is no design drawings in his making process. He is engaged in making a body while touching and expanding its material. A head piece that never makes up to a user goes in and out of art and fashion fields with agility.
Lastly, let me introduce “ON ZA LINE“. Their concept is focused on what brings a user brings to their product rather than what they make. These duo use a ceramic material and turn it into “leaf dish” reflecting the veins of a leaf clearly, such as a moss laid ceramic ring or a leaf dish plate which contains plaster casts of leaves either taro or Farfugium japonicum. If you would like an organic fresh vegetable, they recommend us serving a whole table with their planter “The Garden as Science Fiction”. That is the way they design seeking a life with green.
