In recent times, the value of our personal, quiet time to refresh and rewind has never been more essential while keeping up with our busy schedules. To honor those pockets of moments where you can relax and take a calm, deep breath, we present to you KORAI's series of "senseware", specially designed to heighten your senses and bring mindfulness to your daily lives.
“Ren” is a wooden mobile produced by KORAI, and is part of the brand's "senseware" series. It is made by using a traditional technique of assembling wooden strips without the use of nails to form various designs and patterns. “Ren” is an art piece that reflects the ripple on the surface of the water and light filtering through the trees by incorporating elements of original Japanese fittings such as shoji (room divider screens made of translucent paper and wooden lattice frames) and fusuma (sliding panels that redefine spaces within a room). By placing the wooden art piece indoors, one can sense the beautiful light filtering through between the carefully assembled wooden bars, and enjoy the beautiful shades of nature inside the house.
