Wabi Inspirations

Book description

Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese concept that derives from simplicity and authenticity. It values the beauty of imperfection. Elegance in natural materials, nobility without sophistication, timelessness with tradition: these are the principles that define Axel Vervoordt's personal take on the concept.

This book features Vervoordt interiors that are inspired by wabi philosophies, showing readers how to create calm, peaceful spaces in which beauty is distilled to its purest form. Created with contributions by architect and frequent collaborator, Tatsuro Miki, the book's photographs by Laziz Hamani transport us into the unique atmospheres of these Wabi Inspirations.
