Schemata Architects与家具品牌Artek合作，为庆祝日本与芬兰建交100周年的特别合作展开发了新产品。这些产品所使用的制造技术是设计师Jo Nagasaka为家具系列ColorRing而研发。ColorRing系列曾与Alva Aalto设计的一系列包括椅子，长凳及手推车的家具，共同展出于2013年米兰家具展。ColorRing使用的技术是通过结合并再现两种日本传统的制造技术发展而来，一种是被称为“Tsugaru-nuri”的漆术，另一种是被称为“Udukuri”的木工饰面技术。

In collaboration with artek, we developed new products for the special collaborative exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Finland. The products were conceived by combining the manufacturing technique we developed for “ColorRing”, Jo Nagasaka’s furniture series presented at the Milano Salone in 2013, with Alva Aalto-designed furniture items including the stool, bench, and trolley. “ColoRing” is a manufacturing technique developed by reinterpreting and combining two types of traditional Japanese manufacturing techniques, namely an urushi (lacquer) manufacturing technique called “Tsugaru-nuri” and a wood finish technique called “Udukuri”.

Before this collaboration, our ColorRing products had been inevitably offered at rather high prices because they had been made by hand. Thanks to the collaboration with artek, our ColoRing series can now be manufactured at the factory by incorporating artek’s manufacturing techniques and offered at lower prices. These industrial products are results of the fruitful exchange of knowledge and wisdom between Japan and Finland.
