Through some 250 objects the book 'WA. The Essence of Japanese Design' explores contemporary Japanese design: from everyday objects and packaging to interior design and lighting elements. Ultimately the book aims to explore the way in which Japanese design manages to harness its materials – whether natural or synthetic – and at the same time combines respect for tradition with forward-thinking and experimentation.

The objects featured were chosen because of their strong Japanese character and the influence this 'Japaneseness' has had on Western culture. Rather than following a chronological order or concentrating on the designers, this book focuses on the objects and is categorized by material, highlighting the strong link between design and material in Japan.

There will be a general introduction and then each section will have its own individual introduction:

    Wood, Bamboo & Lacquer
    Paper
    Metal
    Fabric & Textiles
    Ceramic
    Synthetic/new materials
