ukiyo end table

from Moroso

ukiyo end table

Design Tomita Kazuhiko, 2006
Steel wire, polyester resin, kimono fabric
Made in Italy by Moroso

Ukiyo is an end table with a lightweight steel wire structure, in contrast with the boldly decorated table top, formed using traditional kimono fabrics co-pressed with polyester resin. The design is part of a Moroso research project into accessories and decoration. Ukiyo is a well known 18th-century Japanese concept, linked to Shintoist realism, according to which nothing can remain as it is for long, so that living/remaining alive in each moment is the way to attain eternity, as paradoxical as this might seem. Blossoming is the happiest, most radiant time, in which maximum energy is given off everywhere, although no one can say whether the newly-blooming flower will still exist a moment later or not. Thus flowers have been the most widely used decorative motifs ever since the time when all Japanese people wore kimonos.

Ukiyo is offered with either a round or rectangular top in your choice of 5 vibrant patterns.

round: 16.5" dia. | 15.75" h
rectangular: 21.75" w | 17.75" d | 15.75" h
