Kumiko is a Japanese woodwork technique that goes back to the 8th century. Having developed over a long period of time, kumiko refers to a sophisticated technique of grooving slit wooden pieces and arranging them in geometric patterns without nails as a form of wooden lattice decoration.
Each piece is assembled by hand with an accuracy of 0.1mm. Despite its delicate design, you’ll be surprised with the durability and longevity of kumiko wood panels. Made only by the best, award-winning artisans in Japan.
As the “fundo” or weight used to weigh gold and silver symbolizes wealth, this motif has been used for family crests and similar applications. Old weights are rounded and beautifully shaped with two hollowed sides. Fundo is a pattern where weights are linked with “wa”, or hoops, the pronunciation of which is the same as the word for peace in Japanese. You can easily assemble multiple panels to a larger size.
