In Element Designs: Seiji and Himali Kuwabara

With environmental impact and functionality at the heart of their work, In Element Designs is the collaboration and life’s work of Seiji and Himali Kuwabara. This husband-and-wife team seamlessly fuses their native Japanese style with Western influences to create one-of-a-kind designs that combine art, form, and function to transform interiors into harmonious living spaces. 

About the Artwork

This exquisite piece of Japanese design beautifully incorporates the traditional yakisugi technique, showcasing a remarkable mastery of craftsmanship. Its minimalist aesthetic is infused with subtle yet profound inspiration from the landscape of British Columbia, evoking a serene sense of harmony between nature and art. The charred wood texture achieved through yakisugi adds unique depth to the artwork, inviting viewers to contemplate the enduring connection between humanity and the natural world.
