The regular balance of shoji’s muntins and the scenery made in harmony with light represent the serene beauty unique to Japan. We tried to reflect such beauty in a modern shelf. When placing this shelf vertically, you will see the appearance and shades of the vertical lattice like those of shoji. The shelf was named after the light falling and swinging through the lattice (Komorebi refers to light streaming through trees). And by placing it horizontally, the beautiful light falling from behind objects placed in the lattice, as well as the form of the traditional Japanese lifestyle, are expressed in a simple way by this shelf. By rounding the edges of the shelf boards’ front sides, the hard-looking grid begins to look soft. As a partition shelf or a bookshelf, you can beautifully display possessions where the silhouettes along with light that come through the lattice create a serene rhythm and shades of light.
