The Japanese culture is very boundless and in the same time very interesting and drawing attention. The Japanese interior is widely spared all over the world and can be used in every home or room. The details of the interior are highly bounded to the Japanese way of life. Distinguishing feature of Japanese style is the feeling of space in the rooms. This specific feature is influenced by lifestyle in the Land of the Rising Sun, where a relatively small area has many inhabitants. To counteract the crowded atmosphere in the cities, the Japanese are seeking to create more spacious rooms, harmony and order in their homes. To transfer the charm of the East in your home, stick to absolute minimalism especially in details and furniture. Furniture and accessories in the room should be minimized, and their shapes have to be clean and maximum compact. The Japanese use many tricks to increase the space in their homes. The bedrooms, cabinet’s tables are very low, practically inches from the floor. Most often furniture and accessories are resolved in bright colors as this visually increases the volume of spaces. Everywhere into Japanese interior are used sliding doors - both between rooms and in wardrobes.
This is one of the lineament in the design of the Japanese interior. Much attention is paid in the interior to the textile. For the Japanese people relationship with nature is essential, therefore we must be using natural materials - cotton, linen and silk. Besides fabrics, cushions carpets, do not forget another important component of Japanese interior design - blinds from fabric. Bet on the combination of two maximum of three contrasting colors. The most commonly used colors in Japanese interior are black and white, with small details of red. Of course, we can meet different variations of shades, but always within the natural range - for example, cream beige to bright colors, brown and black for darker colors. Do not overlook the decoration. Choose one item from home to decorate as traditional Japanese motif. It shall contrast with exquisitely simple clean lines of the whole interior. This can be a blanket for a bed, why not hand-painted fresco on the wall also.

The main idea behind the designers was to make something looking extraordinary and in the same time multifunctional. The name of the furniture is not accidentally chosen, the Forum is accurately selected as name to represent the purpose of the furniture. The Origami Forum is intended to be meeting place for people. There they can talk, sit, or even lay down to relax. The furniture can be used by only one man or from a group of people.
The chair (or seating furniture as some call the Origami Forum) is made from modular elements. Each piece is "sewn" to the others making the furniture look even more modernistic and eye-catching. One of the advantages of this construction is that it can be easily transported, and we can even change the form of the seating chair by our demands and needs. The material is strong so the Origami Forum can be used indoor and outdoor. This is perfect furniture for public places with the ability to attract people.

- Hanging lamps provide good general lighting, but have the disadvantage to throwing shadows and therefore not suitable for activities such as reading or sewing. The amount of emitted light depends on the shade used and the height of suspension.
- Table lamps illuminate brightly certain areas that need to be well lit, according to the type of shade they can throw light up, down or sideways.
- Standard lamps provide general or directional lighting, as some have lighting ensemble which can be used to highlight certain areas or objects.
- Wall lamps are used to throwing light on the ceiling or floor.
- Fluorescent lamps require a special power supply, which is bulky and difficult to disguise, but they are more durable and therefore more expensive than ordinary. Moreover, there are very small, miniature models, which can easily be hidden.
- Lighting fixtures type moon are good examples of the dual role that light might play, since they have generally lightening functionalities but can also to be used to create certain atmosphere. There are models made for normal bulbs, others - for large bulbs with built-in reflectors, and others - for halogen bulbs, which have very small light beam and are used only for decoration.
