Why Wabi-Sabi?

Why Wabi-Sabi?

As an Interior Architecture and Design student, I am steeped in all things design. I have studied the art and function of interior design of ancient cultures and the cutting edge modernists. There are so many wonderful epochs and styles that I have studied, but the one that has had the most impact on me is wabi-sabi. I actually first encountered the philosophy of wabi-sabi while studying sculpture at Sonoma State. My mom had bought me a copy of Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designer, Poets & Philosophers by Leonard Koren one year for Christmas. That book changed my life in a very positive way because it gave a voice to some design principles that I had always felt innately.
