Miya Shoji is a traditional Japanese carpentry workshop on 17th street in New York. Miya Shoji is built on the Japanese idea that that which is minimal and natural is the most beautiful. The company emphasises the functionality of the woodwork. If a design is good, it stays in use. If it is not good, it disappears. Design always appears with a necessity. If you need more light in your house, you cut the wall and add some window frame. If you feel cold sleeping on the ground, you make a bed and put your matrass on it.
I myself have always been interested in woodwork. When we were building up our new life, we encountered new necessities along the way. This opened up the possibility of working with wood again. Whenever we needed something, I tried to build it in the most functional yet elegant way.
