Here is the work of Kazuaki Hibino, student at the School of Arts and Design (HDK). His creation originated from a very simple idea, but his attention to shapes and purposes made it very thoughtful and elegant. Arguably, this is technically not very advanced (though not trivial), but it easily compensates with a quality that is very close to the notion of ensoulment so dear to Eli Blevis. This object is of the likes that you could develop a relationship with, and that’s why i think it is a great direction to invest in, from a consumer perspective.

Note: i only helped him superficially with reading resources and technical advice, but i’m still glad to be affiliated with the project!
