Miya Shoji

    Established in 1951, Miya Shoji loosely translates from Japanese to “Shrine Carpenter’s Shop,” and father-son team Hisao and Zui Hanafusa approach their work with a spiritual attitude appropriate to the name. All their furnishings and screens are custom made in the traditional Japanese carpentry style using woods like maple, walnut, cherry, chestnut, and elm. Each design is uniquely crafted out of interlocking pieces without the aid of nails or screws. They work only with woods that have been dried in the workshop for 10 to 15 years to enable them to “find their shape.” Only then can they see nature’s contribution to what will soon become everything from tables and shelving to bed frames and DJ consoles. Miya Shoji’s organic pieces are at once simple and breathtaking, giving credence to their motto, “We make future antiques.” It’s a perfect description for their work, which will without a doubt be enjoyed for many generations.Show lessRead more
