The Japanese cultural concept Wa, usually translated in English as harmony, forms the theme for this unique book. Written by Rossella Menegazzo, Associate Professor of History of East Asian Art at the Università degli Studi of Milan and Stefania Piotti, The Essence of Japanese Design examines contemporary Japanese design through the exploration of everyday objects, packaging, interior design and lighting and its impact on the Western world. Chapters are organised by material: wood, metal, glass, ceramics and stone, paper, fabric and synthetic materials and each consists of a fascinating essay and stunning photography of over 300 contemporary objects. Printed on craft paper and traditionally bound in Japanese style, the book is an object of beauty bound to appeal to anyone with an interest in design.
