Tokyo based Schemata Architects are renowned for the coloured resin tables that I have previously mention on the blog. Jo Nagasaka has also designed a unique furniture line called ColoRing using the lacquering technique of Udukuri.
Udukuri is a traditional Japanese wood craft technique that consist of polishing wood surface with a brush made of sew grass to scrape off soft tissue so that coarse grain pattern is revealed.
Nagasaka then uses leftover paint from other constructions to apply three layers of different colors on the surface. After this process, the object will be polished flat, leaving a unique pattern of wood and color in a functional vibrant design.
