Ikigai – In the infinite here & now

 

It translates as ‘our reason for being’ or ‘a reason to jump out of bed in the morning’ – a point of perfect balance, and a sense of fulfillment.

On the Japanese island of Okinawa people believe that finding your Ikigai is the key to longevity and happiness. It is the lens that helps bring your values into focus, leaving the stress and urgency behind, in order to find your purpose, nurture your friendships, and pursue your passions.

Not so much a way of life as a deep understanding of what is already existent in each and every one of us, it is the pursuit and expression of our individuality and harmony.

Tsutsumu

“What is a package if it has no feeling?” (Hideyuki Oka)

To that end, what is anything if it has no feeling?

When we start to appreciate
the ordinary things in life
when we let our hands
reconnect with material
when we allow ourselves to
take the time,

we will hopefully
find connectedness and wholeness
with nature
we will become aware of
our imprint and
we will understand that
aesthetic and moral
must be one.

 

Inspired by Tsutsumu, the fading Japanese art of wrapping.

Helena Rohner

 

 

 

 

The pureness of lines, the simplicity of shapes and the original way to combine silver with surprising materials like porcelain or wood is inherent to Helena Rohner’s creations.

Creations that are recognizable with their serenity and strength of design.
