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.

『そる山』展スタート!

吉祥寺でFloorを始めて間もない頃、西荻窪にさる山はありました。

ストイックさと白の魅力は彼によって教えられた、といっても過言ではありません。

古い器に施された、金だけではなく、銀、錫、朱、黒と、物によって使い分けられた継ぎの美しさ。

その後、麻布十番に移ってからのオリジナルへの発展。

シンプルという枠をはみ出ない一癖。静けさを生み出すエッジ。

今回、京都で初のお披露目となります。

是非、さる山ワールドをSolにて、ご堪能下さい。
