At Sol, one part of the wall is painted in magenta.
This color, discovered by Goethe, is a combination of red and violet,
which respectively are the lowest and highest colors of the visible spectrum.
Red is most heavy with long wavelengths signifying Roughness.
Violet is light with short wavelengths signifying Delicateness.
Hence, in Japan, violet is commonly used to represent the highest rank.
The words, “reason is formed by the height of culture and the height of animality” represent this ideology;
when the extremities of the vulgar and the refined exist, instead of combining both and diving it in half,
it is the intuition of going both directions simultaneously.
This is what is referred to as the Middle Way in Buddhism, meaning when exact opposites exist,
one does not take what is in the center but encloses them both.
Sol’s aim to synthesize the man-made, contemporary and western, with the natural, antique and eastern,
alludes to the meaning of the color magenta, which signifies a mixture of opposite colors.
Thus, magenta is the symbol of the Middle Way.

前手掛けたクライアントさんの家で、共通の友人の誕生パーティ。
料理担当。
使いやすいキッチンでした。
いいマンション。

でもワシ、バリのウブドゥのあばら屋みたいなんが好き。
そんな家建ててみよ。
でもキッチンは使いやすくて、お風呂は半露天みたいな家。床暖付き。
外観と機能とのギャップはデカい。そんなんも好き。

ネイルサロンのお姉さんとか来てて、話すことないと思いつつ、男子にネイルは関係ないですもんねーとか言うてみたら、男性も甘皮とったり、足の角質とったりどうのこうの言われて、タジタジ。

やっぱこういうの緊張する。
嫌いとかじゃないけど。
なんやろね、そういうのって。
