In or­der to add colour and con­trast to liv­ing spa­ces, Tokyo-based Schemata Ar­chi­tects has come up with one-of-a-kind col­lec­tion of fur­ni­ture—which in­cludes ta­bles, chairs and stools—by de­signer Jo Na­gasaka. Ti­tled Col­oR­ing, the se­ries uses the tra­di­tional wood craft tech­nique of Udukuri to give th­ese pieces a fresh look. The sur­face is first pol­ished with a sew-grass brush to re­move soft tis­sue and re­veal the coarse grain pat­tern. The grains are then splashed with three dif­fer­ent lay­ers of paint, left over from other con­struc­tions. The coarse tex­ture is then pol­ished flat and the end re­sult is a flaw­less piece of fur­ni­ture with just the right hint of bright. www.schemata.jp
