With the designer Toyo Ito’s nomination, Kikukawa participated in the reconstruction project of Jikido (dining hall) Yakushiji, a world heritage temple.
The fabricated ceiling panels express trails of clouds spreading, as inspired by the “Illustration of the Pure Land of Amida” that is placed in the middle of the room.
To implement the design concept, gold bright dip anodization was chosen for its gloss and gentle reflections. The panels were laser-cut, then fitted carefully to ensure the seamless design.
