Branding and product design for the whole project called "RIMPA 400," celebrating the 400th anniversary for Rimpa school, the origin of Japanese art of beauty. The project was a collaboration between modern artisans and craftsmen who work with traditional crafts in Kyoto. The paper lantern is decorated with detailed patterns in order to show the beauty of bamboo in its structure (collaborated with Kojima Shouten). The wallet with "Hikibaku" technique creates a myriad of patterns by applying gold and silver leaves (collaborated with Nishiyama Jisaku World)​​​​​​​.

琳派400周年を記念したプロジェクト「RIMPA400」において、京都の伝統工芸を担う現代の職人・作家と協業し、琳派の精神を現代的に解釈したプロダクトの開発および、プロジェクト全体のブランディングを行いました。竹の構造の美しさを見せるために細かいパターンの貼り分け手法を開発し実現した照明は、小嶋商店とのコラボレーション。 「引箔」の技法を用いて金箔を貼った財布は、西山治作商店とのコラボレーション。
