Interview with Mitsuharu Kojima on Boko and Deko Residential House

What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
To create the feeling - centered framework of space. A house allows residents to move around the inner space of the house to find their comfortable spot, which depends on their feelings.
What are your future plans for this award winning design?
We’d like to try to create the feelings centering frameworks in a larger space.
Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
Our clients requested us to consider the concept. Because, through the interaction between us realized that they wanted to search their comfortable spots more freely in their house.
How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
This name of the design is Japanese in origin. That means that the surfaces of something are no always flat. In other words, it is not only the meanings of expression for materials, but also for differences in various conditions, for example, there is a sunny spot, and the spot in the shade in whole space that we created.
What is the most unique aspect of your design?
To enable the residents to look for comfortable spaces that can be changed by their mind or climate. The point is, to generate great variation to extract their innate nature to be active to obtain things they need by using inner factors and external factors.
What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
Not to consider the comfortable in advance similar making the furniture, we did not put too much stress on design, so that residents can look for their comfortable spaces that depend on their mind.
How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
The age is changing that people can get involved with the relationships among people who can get various comforts by using the global developing networks. But, it seems to be a problem that we have still passive attitude toward a space in our houses. So, we’d like to propound this matter to the global platform.
What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
We came to know new concept of the rich spaces that is not to put the stress on design too much.
