Japanese designer and Studio Note founder Norihiko Terayama pairs his passion for interiors with his love for nature to create one-of-a-kind decor. In a creative series of sculptures, Teryama suspends real flora and organic objects within minimalist polygonal frames, playing with form and material to produce eye-catching juxtapositions.
To craft each work of art, Terayama wraps dried flowers, worn driftwood, and twisting tree branches in polygons made out of pins and thread. As the threads follow the fluid contours of the natural object, it is artistically reimagined it as a geometric structure, illustrating how “an artificial polygon was born from [its] organic shape.”
Terayama was inspired to work with these found objects due to the innate beauty of their forms. In order to accentuate each unique silhouette, he sculpted the geometric frames around the blooms, boughs, and wood. When fully formed, these pin-and-thread frames double as avant-garde art and, as Terayama describes, “a new crust” for each ordinary and overlooked object.
