Yama no Katachi


The Yama no Katachi project began in 2014 in Yamagata Prefecture, led by designers Shibayama Shūhei and Sudō Osamu. The pair collaborate with local artisans and craftspeople, blending modern design with long-established techniques to produce contemporary tools and household items. By preserving the wisdom and experience of the local community, who historically adapted their tools and lifestyles to the unique and sometimes challenging climate of Yamagata, the project aims to ensure the continuation of these techniques for future generations.
