Tatami takes inspiration from-and shares its name with-the gridded system of tatami mats at the heart of traditional Japanese architecture. A single tatami, whose dimensions are based on the human body, is a unit of measurement as well as a base module that generates the three-dimensional layouts of rooms. Similarly, Tatami's rational, modular grid system allows a wide array of two- and three-dimensional arrangements, as units can be connected both vertically and horizontally.
