Concept ” Ma”
Ma (pronounced “maah”) is a celebration of not things, but the space between them. It is about negative space, voids, emptiness. And it is relished in everything from interiors, architecture and garden design to music, flower arrangement and poetry. And actually beyond; it can be found in most aspects of Japanese life.
Coco Chanel famously advised that, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”
While removing, say, a scarf, might not reveal negative space, it does make room for the other accessories to shine. In a way, Ma does the same.
In a home where there are too many things, nothing is highlighted. But by focusing on and expanding the space in which there is nothing, the things that are there spring into life.
As Concept “Less is More”, Concept ” Ma” is pure, and indeed essential, void between all “things.”
A total lack of clutter, MA is like a holder within which things can exist, stand out and have meaning.
