Wabi Sabi is a Japanese school of aesthetics inspired by Taoist and Buddhist philosophies that embraces the timeworn, the weathered, and the accidental. Asymmetry, irregularity, economy, and intimacy are key aspects; beauty waits to be discovered in the unpredictable and evolving nature of materials and form.

These ideas stand in contrast to the seamless perfection of design and built-in obsolescence that characterize the current tech-centric era. Wabi Sabi celebrates historicity by highlighting the cracks and crevices left by use. It is temporal, reflecting mortality and humanity by focusing upon the fragility and mutability of life. Accidental fissures pierce the veneer of the seemingly finished and complete. Layers of decay and erosion create visual maps of experience.
