Using Japanese joinery to create seamless knock-down furniture. My experience living in Japan made me realize how environmental differences can impact a culture's views on design. During my three years at Kyushu University's Graduate School of Design, I conducted on-site research with several artisanal furniture companies in the southern island of Kyushu to uncover the mindsets, approaches, and techniques that they used to incorporate sustainability into their products.
