The Japanese studio stated: “Within the space where we live there are items that ‘move’. They are furniture, doors and windows – Items that move in relation to our daily activities. Although they may not be visible, we are subconsciously aware of the ‘traces’ of their movements every day.”

The ‘trace’ furniture collection explores “a new relationship between items and human beings is being pursued through the visualization of the numerous “traces” that we feel within our everyday lives”.
