Jo Nagasaka

Udukuri creates a simple yet modern table for the home by utilising traditional Japanese techniques. The grain of the douglas fir table top is hand carved to create an uneven feature surface (an artisan technique known as Udukuri). Brightly coloured epoxy resin treatments are then applied to the surface, creating an elegant, smooth finish that transforms the table. The naturally occurring pattern of the wood grain is cleverly enhanced, the deeper the carving, the stronger the colour appears. Udukuri shows the talent of Nagasaka in creating avant-garde furniture whilst maintaining a purposeful, Japanese minimalist style.
