Jp En

Born in 1964, Genta Kanayama is a designer in various fields such as product design including “Furoshiki Bag,” in which furoshiki (a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth) and a bag are combined together, “DUENDE Tissue Case Stand,” which is a standing tissue paper holder, and other sundry goods, furniture and housing equipment as well as graphic design and space design. He established genta design co., ltd. with Chie Kanayama in 2004.

Especially interesting is that he wrote about episodes of developing Furoshiki Bag in Chie Kanayama’s blog. According to the blog, he hit upon this idea when he got an order to design something nice for bringing back a large lunchbox that is usually delivered at a Buddhist memorial service in the Shikoku region, and which is normally wrapped with furoshiki cloth. Then he finally reached the idea to create a new type of furoshiki that doesn’t look like furoshiki.
