By No author /asdf 15-04-2010

The Eindhoven-based design duo BCXSY present Join, a series of three space-dividers made from Hinoki (Japanese Cypress) at Spazio Rossana Orlandi. 

Derived from the traditional Tategu aesthetic - the traditional craft of Japanese wood joinery - the pieces are handcrafted by master craftsman Mr. Tanaka in his workshop in Tokyo. Available in an edition of eight.

Sayaka Yamamoto is a jewellery designer from Japan who came to Eindhoven in 2005 to study a Masters program at the Design Academy. Israeli-born Boaz Cohen, who has Dutch roots, also studied at the Design Academy where they met and decided to work together. BCXSY was born - a name consisting of their initials joined with an X inbetween. Yamamoto and Cohen see their relationship as a benefit to their creativity.
