Fossilized Future


"Fossilized Future" is a collection of furniture born from imagining the fossilized form of contemporary resources in the future. As resources of today fossilize into the future, he questions how the current society will be perceived in the future, and how today’s human creations will give impact on the future. By surveying the present from the perspective of a future where these furniture will be discovered as fossils, it offers a new viewpoint.

By viewing fossils not as relics of the past but as metaphors linking the past and future, he considers that things created in the present will eventually shape the future. Therefore, these furniture works are made from materials generated in our contemporary daily life, such as wood from nearby forests felled due to oak wilt disease and soil-like materials found in the surrounding area. These materials include not only minerals and charcoal that are components of the soil, but also natural materials discarded daily such as rice husks, leftover coffee grounds, and vegetable peels, serve as traces of everyday life. He developed and experimented with these materials to create a unique material that could be considered as the ‘contemporary soil’.

These large blocks made from these materials are created by the designer and cut by a chainsaw. This process resembles excavating fossils buried in the soil, and the discoveries of the exposed cross-sections are preserved as they are.
