Studio CHIKUFUSHA was established in 2005 by Kenichi Otani who worked under Masataka Yufu, an accredited master artisan of Beppu Bamboo Crafts in Japan. With the aim to let the user feel the warmth of the maker's hands, Studio CHIKUFUSHA produces craft items such as bamboo plates and hand baskets for daily use. Experimenting with and using local Madake (giant timber bamboo), the studio creates new items that bring simple pleasures to your daily life.
Beppu Bamboo Japan Project is a project where traditional and new types of products are developed that suit the modern lifestyle.
Studio CHIKUFUSHA will show traditionally braided and hand woven bamboo baskets for your everyday life. Everything, from the processing of the raw bamboo material to the weaving, is done by hand using techniques handed down over many centuries.
Beppu Bamboo Japan will also showcase their flower vase made of crystal-like acrylic resin in which a braided bamboo is enclosed. A contemporary vase for a modern home interior.
