This object saves designer Kei Kato when there's a fire
"What would you take with you if there was a fire?" I asked different designers. The first is Japanese product designer Kei Kato, who wants to encourage our imagination.
No matter how beautiful they are - furniture fairs are also hectic. Many people, many collections and many questions. Sometimes I have no choice but to be brief. That's why at this year's Salone I only asked one hypothetical question of the designers: "There is a fire in your studio, all the people and animals have been saved. Which of your designs will you take with you?" Now I know which object the creative minds are particularly burning for.
First of all, I asked the designers which object they would like to take with them.
First I asked young designer Kei Kato of Itsuka Design, who already has a lot of experience in interior design. Since he has been living in Tokyo, however, he has focused on floristry. Kei therefore instantaneously chooses the design "Drawing". A vase in lattice form with which you can create flower pictures. In the lower part there is a container into which you fill the water. The Japanese designer has two good reasons for his choice.
"Firstly, 'Drawing' is a vase and a new way to create decorative patterns with flowers. It's like you're drawing a painting. As a designer, I think of things all the time. I didn't just want to say how important I think it is that everyone does it more often. That's why I developed a product that automatically stimulates the imagination. Secondly, I want to promote an environment where people choose flowers more often because they are living things and symbolise vitality. I just admire how they grow every day, with their stems always facing the sun."
