Sponge chair 2009 900 x 900 x 700 sponge, stainless steel

The nature of material-we find possibility in it. It is a very natural work to draw the only and unique potential within the material into the substance. Its designer makes the environment. When the designer leads the subject material appear as a form he or she wants sympathizing with it, and the form plays its role, the ‘soft design’ we think is completed. Soft design is unenforced naturalness.

It draws a form of material which it is necessarily to be in certain nature and environment, respecting characteristics of the material. There is no awkwardness in the form because the unique characteristic of the material is absorbed in it. The material and its form harmonize well. And it is distinguished from hard design, which designers usually make the form by perforce, ignoring the nature of the material and setting it into the form already made that is somewhat awkward.
