From Inside to Outside, from Outside to Inside
These partitions can block dazzling sunlight or the view from the outside but at the same time allow people inside to be aware of light, wind, or sound from outside the partition. They are indispensable items in Japanese houses, where people highly value the changes in the natural world outside. Nychair X Shikiri is inspired by the concept of a shikiri partition and suggests a lifestyle with a closer connection to nature.

Dark Grey Shoji
