EXAMPLE OF CONSTRUCTIONS

Interior wall of TOHO CINEMAS NIJYO, 2005

We have created a "bamboo grove" inside TOHO CINEMAS NIJYO, at each side of the passage in the theater. It would make you feel as if you were wandering into a deep forest of bamboo.

This pathway which brings to each screen shall make you feel excited just before watching movies.

Making furniture using both wood and bamboo is one of our strong points.

We would like to represent a "Culture of Bamboo" which recently has become widely known in many other countries.

Arashiyama Station, 2004

We have engaged in constructing the space "Hannari Hokkori Square", in Arashiyama Station, a railway station of Randen (Keifuku-Dentetsu). Using 3000 pieces of coated bamboo, we tried to describe a clump of green bamboo at the wall and the celling in concourse.

Commemorative plaque

Nagaokakyo City has awarded the Nagaokakyo Medal of Honor in the sports category to Ayumi Kaihori, who played as "a guardian goddess" at Women's World Cup 2011. We have created, by request from Nagaokakyo City a commemorative plaque made from bamboo, a specialty of the city, with drawing a design of the moment when she stopped a kick in penalty shootout.
