Korea Style

自然との共存、素材への敬意、普遍的な機能美。古くからの哲学、ミニマリズム、美意識が息づく「コリア・スタイル」。今、注目される韓国の建築・インテリアデザインを浮き彫りにした初の写真集。ミニマルな空間に置かれた李朝家具と現代美術が見事な調和を生み出す独自なライフスタイル。住宅から商業施設、歴史建造物まで22の作品を収載。 Natural serenity, unostentatious refinement and interplay of light and shadow are all hallmarks of Japanese residential design. The selection of houses reflects the many changes in the dynamics of Japanese society, including an aging population and the desire to remain childless; while others embody creativity and individuality. Throughout, a return to traditional materials and design elements is married with present-day requirements as minimalism, flexibility, energy efficiency and electronic gadgetry. Each of these homes is an exquisite representation of the integrity consistently found within Japanese residential architecture, both in new construction and old.
