About

Low table " LAC" Daté Kan volcanic stone Limited Edition Drawing by Kaaron studio Collaboration with Okurayama Studio Dimensions : 45 (H) x 222 (W) x 73 (d) cm Daté Kan Stone is extremely rare and precious and has rarely been used for sculptural design before. It is known for it's unique colors and it's powerful aesthetic vibrations. Datekan is classified as two-pyroxene andesite and is unearthed from brown soil in a columnar jointing form. Rough stones of Datekan are taken out from the layer of the quarries or round-weathered rough stones of Datekan are unearthed at quarries before being shipped. One of the big features of Daté Kan is that each expression differs widely, depending on the place to be unearthed. The texture of globe-shaped weathered stones assume a black color or ocher color, while those taken out from joints are reddish brown, having various natural patterns Okurayama Studio, LOCI Mt. Zao is one of the best known place for mountain asceticism in the Tohoku Region. Mt. Okurayama, commanding a view of its magnificent shape, has a quarry which produces such as megaliths-extending well beyond 5 meters-and rough stones-in a form far beyond the creation of human beings-from the brown earth. You will have a feeling of awe towards the landscape, which has nurtured life over a few ten thousand years, if you see the serene aspect of innumerable stones in a place where the bedrock is elevated and the stratum is curved. You will feel the air of the Primitive era, a long time ago when the distance between nature and humans was closer, if you Stand by stones whose expression change with pelting rains, winds from Mt.Zao and mists hanging over at dawn. The word LOCI derives from Latin word genius loci, a combined word of genius and loci, which meanings are the spirit and land, respectively. The word translated as "an earth spirit" contains the most valuable feeling of Okurayama Studio, which is to look after materials being provided with the land, in other word loci. Okurayama Studio is a mining place for Datekan (Date Kan-muri Ishi Stone) located in Marumori Town, Japan. Okurayama Studio has been carrying out stone services in Miyagi Prefecture, since the founder Chozo Yamada moved from Hyogo Prefecture for the purpose of constructing the bridge of Aobajo, a castle noted in connection with the Date domain, as a stonemason in 1887. Mining at Mt. Okurayama started in 1925. Datekan is now in the limelight among sculptors - with its unique sculptural form and its beautiful rust color. The project of Okurayama Studio which started 30 years ago is still being preserved under the concept of not only receiving the blessings of nature, but to remain powerful stones at the mountain and to repay the mountain via increasing trees and plants.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
