The beauty of everyday things

Soetsu Yanagi

Editor’s Note:

The Japanese philosopher and aesthete’s definitive, hugely influential exposition of his philosophy of folkcrafts, setting out the hallmarks of Japanese design as we know it today: anonymity, quality, simplicity and honesty-and, of course, wabi-sabi, the beauty of imperfection. Our lives are filled with objects. Everyday things used in everyday settings, they are our constant companions. As such, writes Soetsu Yanagi, they should be made with care and built to last, treated with respect and even affection. They should be natural and simple, sturdy and safe-an aesthetic fulfillment of our practical needs. They should, in short, be things of beauty.
