Designed by Shinn Asano with background in graphic design, Sen is a 6 piece collection of steel furniture that turns 2D lines into 3D forms. Each piece including “hitotaba lamp” has been created with lines that minimize excess to express both form and functionality in a range of applications, inspired by unique sources such as traditional Japanese craft and patterns. Hitotaba lamp is inspired by the scenic view of the Japanese countryside where bundles of rice straw are hung downwards to dry after harvesting.
