Osaka by Teruhiro Yanagihara for Offecct

February 2020
The simplest forms and materials, reflecting each other and creating a jigsaw puzzle expressing both precision and clarity. Teruhiro Yanagihara’s Osaka is all about reducing in order to find the core of the product.
With Osaka, Teruhiro Yanagihara has created a timeless, simple collection that is a natural ambassador for Offecct’s design philosophy. In part, the collection is inspired by footpaths made of cobblestones of different sizes – an organic form that simultaneously exudes precision and clarity.
“My background is in spatial design and architecture and I’m always thinking about spaces, rather than about individual objects. What I saw before me with Osaka was a landscape of furniture, inspired by Japanese stone gardens”, says Teruhiro Yanagihara.
