Shigeki Fujishiro

In his quest to better understand Arita-ware across its 400 year history, Japanese designer Shigeki Fujishiro discovered the predominance of the colour red. Within Arita, overglaze itself is commonly referred to as akae or literally ‘red painting’ and has historically been used with great deference for centuries, an aspect that Fujishiro picked up on and decided to use as the central concept for his design range. This is a series of daily use items whose form is composed in clean, straight lines, emphasising a functionality that will make them a versatile and harmonious addition to Asian and Western dining tables alike.

デザイナーの藤城成貴は400年に渡る有田焼の歴史を探求し、赤い色の優位性を発見しました。有田では上絵付けのことを赤絵と呼び、昔から特別な色として使われてきましたが、彼はこの赤に着目し、その色を中心にしたデザイン開発を行いました。直線で構成された形状は、機能性を強調し、東洋、そして西洋の食卓のいずれにも調和する用途を持った、日常の道具となるシリーズです。
