Zanat / Products / Genkan Mirror

Genkan, designed by Naoto Fukasawa, is a collection of hallway pieces including a console table, mirror and a beautiful storage box designed to enrich the regular ritual we perform upon departing home and returning home from the world outside. The ritual usually involves looking into a mirror, leaving coins, keys and other objects. Hallway is a place where we meet our guests, a place where one meets herself in the mirror. The mirror and a console form a sculptural object that resembles a person with welcoming open arms, a symbol you will gladly come back home to. Genkan, meaning hallway in Japanese, resembles an archaic Bosnian word “ganjak” (reads ganyak) which means hall or corridor that leads towards the entrance door. These soft and rounded objects will transform any hallway into a warm and welcoming space. The carvings on the mirror, console top and the box add warmth and tactility to daily rituals while adding depth and beauty to the objects. Genkan box is reminiscent of a shell from the depths of sea, a shell that hides our pearls, keys and other objects, which we take with us when departing, while also providing a tactile experience for our fingertips upon coming home.
