In Kumamoto Prefecture, FIL brand furniture uses Oguni Sugi cedar, a locally grown timber in Aso District, Minamioguni. The sensations of experiencing the land and handling the materials have taken form as memories. Having respect for the environment where the materials are from, we sample from that environment and bring it close to you. The weighty feel of cedar and the contrasting material of the frame bring out the quality in the cedar, and these values of increased lightness makes you feel like a fresh breeze in the natural environment of the Aso District Oguni would.
The MASS series is, just as its name suggests, products that fascinate with mass, making use of the lightness of the weight of cedar, designed with bold thickness and surface area. We tried to express the materials in a different way from how existing furniture makes use of them and is structured. We aim to bring to bring to mind the value in the materials and vitality and environment of in the timber with this project.
