Masashi Ifuji happened to meet Shaker's objects when he was 15. It would lead him to be a woodworker. After working in a personal furniture studio in Takayama, Masashi launched his own studio IFUJI, formally in Gifu, and then moved to Nagano.
All IFUJI's products are made by hand in our studio with finest materials and maximum care. We reproduce old objects from various cultures, not only to find a guide into tomorrow by making lessons from the past, but to use them actually by ourselves. The essential way of living is not disposable, not materialistic. When a plate is beautiful and useful, who throw it away? We seek to create the thing that beauty meets use. Everyday we know we are on the road, there is no end to the work.
We wish our products to be loved to use as much as we love to make.
