Wabi-Sabi - For Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers
This extended essay, by Leonard Koren, universalised the Japanese traditional rustic aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi that was developed over hundreds of years by Zen priests and tea masters. Wabi-sabi functions today as a prototypical "complete" aesthetic, nature-based and "soft" in contrast to the "hard" digital aesthetics of modern computer-age design. As such, it offers designers and other creative people a wealth of insight into materials and process.
