Masa Hayami


Multidisciplinary Digital Artist / Life Activist


Born in Hyogo prefecture Japan

She attended an international school from elementary school and went to England for college. From an early age she grew up in people of various races and nationalities and has been educated in an international environment. She adopts Eastern thought and focuses on humanity.She tries to see what rests beneath whatever seems to be happening on the surface of things.It's almost like training to face herself deeply.Her challenge is also the attempt to break global barriers and approach social matters.


ROLF BENZ has created a new trend in the history of the past 55 years and has released many iconic furniture that has opened up the era. Designed by Sebastian Herkner, the "Rolf Benz 594" is a work in this group. Precise craftsmanship is required to squeeze the curve of the armchair. The back shell is designed to wrap around you, allowing you to sit comfortably and lean against the left and right corners. The seat has a high cushioning property, and the wrinkles and piping treatment applied as a design show the attention to detail and high quality of this armchair.In addition to this, new works such as side tables and sideboards will also appear.

新しいシリーズ、“Roots below the earth “地球の下の根、をスタート禅の「脚 下照顧」(きゃっかしょうこ)という言葉があります。自分の足下を顧みるとは「我が身」や「我が心」を振り返れ、自分が今どうゆう立場にいるか、よく見極めて事に当たれと言うこと。私たちは日々次から次へと様々なことに流されて、自分のことを静かに見つめる機会があまり無くなりがち。「灯台もと暗し」と言うように、他人のことはよく分かるけど、自分のことは分かりにくいもの
