Studio Yuma Kano: Screw. This is a collaborative project with Komuro Seisakusho, a screw factory in East Osaka, Japan. Ever since its invention, the screw hasn’t changed its style and function. The screw is more than just an ordinary screw; it is a product that can bring joy. East Osaka is region where is well known for its highly qualified manufacturing because of the existence of the plenty of small and medium enterprises. This factory produces almost seven hundred million screws a year. I was trying to give expression and emotion to the ordinary screw.
