The modern interpretation
A contemporary Echizen chest that combines the traditional Japanese joinery technique “sashimono” with the charm of rare wood from all over the world. Echizen chest has been carefully made and used as a wedding tool and heirloom since the late Edo period. The 4th generation of tansu craftsman, Norikazu Oyanagi is a firm believer in making objects that weave family memories and bonds. His creation portrays a compelling contrast between the exquisite luster of wood and the clean-looking iron metal fittings. Appearing almost like a single block of wood with a continuous grain pattern, it is a functional art cabinet that compliments your modern living.
