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.
We have developed a wall adornment that takes advantage of the specific lightness of Japanese cedar wood. Designed to evoke the natural environment of Minamioguni, the product can be lined up to give the impression of a mountainous landscape. The shadows shift over the daylight hours and change the expression of the trim. Our goal is to create products that evoke a sense of harmony between the indoor and outdoor environments.
"It seems to me that we all look at Nature too much, and live with her too little. "
