WTAPS PHILOSOPHY

For a long time in Japan there have been master

craftsmen called Miya Daiku. Highly skilled, traditional

carpenters who specialize in shrine and temple

architecture, they are known for making full use of

their construction materials. For example, if they find

a gnarled or imperfect piece of wood, they are able to

see its full potential instead of discarding it because

of its flaws.

Shape determines how an item will be used. I believe

this is what design can do. “Placing things where they

should be” on the assumption that necessity dictates

its use. Trying to maximize the potential of things

within the limits of the design.

That is our philosophy.

—Tetsu Nishiyama, aka “Tet” / Designer
