Old Japanese Modernism
I introduce a glass door which I install in Nishio city.
My customer prefers Japanese antique so much. However, the house is an brand-new. So, I look into some antiqued items and install them in accordance with her preference.
This is the one of them. Japanese calls it Checker Glass, but people in North America usually call it Cross Reed Glass.
I had seen it at a private clinic, a barber or a public bath in Japan but now not.
Recently it shows at internet shops in Japan. So, it becomes popular with some Japanese women.
I painted the solid wood (Hem-Fir) doors by darkish natural oil. I feel it dignified, compared with a hollow core door.
