intelligence Magazine speaks with the duo behind Nalata / Nalata
Our editorial team payed a visit to NYC’s Nalata / Nalata to speak on collaboration, craftsmanship, meaningful design and how it can play a positive role in enriching one’s life.
What is it about Japanese made goods that appeal to you?
Impeccable craftsmanship is one thing but it’s also the Japanese approach to design that we gravitate towards. Actually there’s a lot of crossover aesthetically between Japanese products and those of other regions like Scandinavia but the Japanese have multiple layers of meaning upon meaning in every design decision that we find absolutely brilliant. Philosophies like wabi-sabi, mono no aware and seikatsu kogei, they’re really in line with our own design principals.
