LASVIT Yakisugi

The collection was inspired by the ancient Japanese technique for preserving construction timber by charring its surface. “The idea behind Yakisugi collection is about questioning the materiality of glass and natural wooden texture. My intention was to plumb the depth of wooden soul, captured inside the glass,” explains Kengo Kuma. Using dry wood in place of traditional pre-soaked molds, the wood is charred by molten glass. That leaves a permanent imprint of its scorched texture on the glass surface, making each piece an authentic original. This slight modification to a centuries-old technique produced a modern and minimalistic collection that combines simple geometric forms with unusual organic textures.
