We went for it without any hesitation.
We’ve formed the world at a quickening pace.
What on earth is this world that we’ ve created?

私たちは振り向くことなく突き進んだ
私たちは加速度的に世界を形成していった
私たちが築いたこの世界は、いったい何だったんだろうか?

Director’s Statement
Using a sheet of graph
paper, which is typically
used for architectural drawings,
I combined straight lines which
stretch out in three directions to
construct the visual. I think that
original fascination with animation is the
limitations. To challenge the limitations,
I started creating animation by using minimal
elements. Apparently, it looks like computer
graphics though it’s really digital animation
drawn by hand.

BASIL

The side tables BASIL were born from the desire of Arthur Leitner to use the natural qualities of cork. He has associated the solidity and lightness of a structure in steel with a geometric table top in cork (sphere, pyramid, parallelepiped). The strength of the object comes from its simple aesthetic and it is without complexes that BASIL can move from a side table next to a sofa to a bedside table.
