Japan is synonymous worldwide with traditional timber construction and the diversified use of wood in every sphere. Out of a long-enduring tradition emerge products of unrivalled refinement, craftsmanship and minimalist design. From bridges, through dwellings, sliding doors and furniture, to receptacles, tools and musical instruments, this publication presents the technique, tradition, context and production of some 30 different kinds of objects, focusing on the genesis of each. Every step from material selection through to surface finish is captured directly by noted photographer Roland Bauer in fascinating sequences, which combine with the detailed drawings to make each item's composition and production easy to grasp.Henrichsen, Christoph is the author of 'Japan--Culture Of Wood Buildings, objects, techniques', published 2004 under ISBN 9783764370220 and ISBN 376437022X.
