役割を終えた古物 / 不要品を
“yoso” is about finding and giving new value in products that are damaged from consumption cycle or labelled as defect during manufacturing.
We difine these products that have defects from manufacturers as “before PRODUCT”,
while, products that have lost the functionality after usage as “after PRODUCT”.
“yoso” transforms these products to another consumption cycle.
We believe the error during manufacturing process is the manifestation of the material characteristics.
Although the product has lost its functionality, the meaning of each shapes remains. After prolonged usage, each product has cultivated its own dissimilar uniqueness; creating distinct individuality over lapse of time.
