The theme of works for Bud brand 2016

bud brand 2017 object theme

Mobile = Mobility

When humans think about convenience, “mobile” is an indispensable concept. Typical examples in recent years include cell phones and laptops.Going back a bit further, we have wristwatches and folding umbrellas. These are all products that changed people’s lives significantly and even now continue to evolve and permeate our lifestyles. The “mobile” mentioned in this year’s theme does not refer to things like electronic devices or applications premised on digital technology. Rather, it means, for example, something that allows its user to take a break anywhere, anytime. Or have a party. Or play. The idea is to “mobilize” things that ordinarily we would never conceive of carrying around or that are fundamentally too big to move. This underscores the creation of unique products that are not only convenient, but give shape to something interesting and unexpected and prompt the reaction, “Wouldn’t it be fun if we had something like that!” Changing how we live and feel in our everyday lives by mobilizing things we have always assumed impossible to pick up and carry around – we’re conducting a wide-ranging search for ideas filled with such dreams.

Fantastical light
of our childhood

Illuminator

This illumination is a source of light in itself, but when it changes shape illuminating a floor or wall, its beauty increases.
The fantastical light leaking from mosquito nets that we remember fondly as children is expressed with deep silk cotton.

Welcome ware

Tea cup

While keeping the form of a traditional Japanese cup, we have optimized its use for coffee, tea and green tea.
Each cup has a different size and thickness and makes for a tastier drink.

Sitting on the floor and lying down on the floor. Tatami best describes the relationship with the floor and this Japanese lifestyle.

KUMIKO sheet

Place mat / wallpaper

Eat, touch, smell and enjoy. Japanese traditional "kumiko" technology (assembling wood without using nails) is used, and the wood is cut carefully one by one into blocks in the "kumiko" form by the hands of craftsmen, then it is finely scraped keeping the charm of the bark. It is only 0.5mm, like a sheet of Japanese paper. The texture, color and smell all help to show the food to its advantage.
This piece shows the Japanese "omotenashi" spirit helping this enjoyable meal time to remain in your memory.
