Perspective Freehand Style of Home Design in Japan III -- Return to Original and Natural

Japan is a country which is modern, fashionable but also traditional, low-pitched…

In Tokyo, those skyscrapers and modern fashion designs will make you dazzling, and their high-tech tools also very advanced and high-developed, but if you entered in some common families in Japan you will find their foods, living rooms, and daily-use articles still been kept very traditional, especially in Kyoto, there are very few high-rise buildings, and most of buildings there are traditional low living houses, inside which there are tatamis, Japanese are accustomed to sitting and sleeping on the floor, that is a most traditional way of life in Japan.

In past time the demand rank of life in most Japan families was arranged according to food, clothing, transportation and living, now that has shifted to a new order as living first, transportation next, then clothing, and food last, which put the improvement of living conditions to the first place. And during the peorid of post-war, Japan began to emphasis much on both technical quality and talent development, which constructed a solid base for Japan’s rapid development later.

Now the space characters and design concepts Japanese pursued could incorporates as following:

1. More Purified and Abstract Design thus to Attain a More Pure beauty…

2. Appreciate Natural Materials, Sights Stirs Up with Feeling, and Return to Original and Natural

Think much of the surface material processing when to create a space, and emphasis on the textures of material commonly, that imply its functions to break through frames.

Keeping those surfaces of concrete, wood textures as well as metal plates such as aluminum alloy, steel and other metal composite panels, artificial stones, mosaic revealed intact and boldly.

To show the material texture or its original forms specially, plus precise polishing, and let the quality of the surface materials which throughout modern technology processing entirely same as them shown on photographs from camera, or as quality viewed from a color filter, a particular method of material application with visual effects.


This type of filtering space effects featured with cool, smooth visual effects on surface, which could affects people's emotion, so that people living in cities could get some redeems for their potential moods of nostalgia, nostalgic, and back-to-nature.

In the process of design forms purification and abstraction, the more attention paid on material’s texture and quality will bound to rise to an unprecedented level, and the modern technology also has built good conditions for this rise.

Now, to create new texture effects, and the psychological effects people respond to these texture effects have become one of particular parts pursued deliberately by modern interior designers.
