Mr. Takahashi started his talk by explaining about SASIMONO, the traditional Japanese wood joint technique that he utilize in his furniture.

As an example of his work, Mr Takahashi's "lo lo stool" was brought to the lecture to explain how his work is influenced by other designers.

Mr Takahashi also brought and show us his tools and explain the importance of "making tools." It was fascinating story for students who are not familiar with woodcraft. After the lecture, many participants had a chance to feel beauty of wood through planing wood with canna.
