Udukuri shows Jo Nagasaka’s ability to create a simple yet modern object for the house. By utilizing traditional Japanese techniques, the designer manipulates the surface of the Douglas fir top by peeling it in order to expose the grain and create an uneven surface. Nagasaka then applies brightly coloured epoxy resin treatments to the surface, creating an elegant, smooth finishing and transforming the everyday object back into a functional table. Udukuri shows the amazing and incredible genius of Nagasaka in creating avant-garde furniture whilst maintaining a purposeful, Japanese minimalist style.
