  • 井上 拓馬 / Takuma Inoue
    1984年、京都生まれ。16歳で単身渡米し、7年間をN.Y.で過ごす。
    伝統を重んじる古都に生まれ、多様性を受け入れる都市に育ったことは、その後の視点に大きな影響を与えた。
    ニューヨーク州・ファッション工科大学(FIT)インテリアデザイン科を卒業後、帰国。
    株式会社グラマラスに入社し、ドーハ、中国、台湾、アメリカなど多数の海外プロジェクトを経験した。
    2012年、[株式会社everedge]を設立。その社名に、自身のデザインフィロソフィーが込められている。
    [ever]とはタイムレス、[edge]とは際立った鋭さ。つまり、「普遍的でエッジの利いたデザインを追い求める」という、インテリアデザインの矛盾をいかにして成立させるのか。
    そんな発想の起点に置くのは、すべての物事が持ち合わせている「両極」をしっかり見つめること。
    だからこそ、アイディアは際限なくふくらみ、デザインの振り幅が生まれ、その中心を貫く揺るぎのない本質が見つかるーー。

    流行や固定概念にとらわれないマクロなバランス感覚を持ち、オーナーの思いと交差するミクロの接点を見出すことが、everedgeの視点である。
    デザイン表現として重要視するのは、時間とともに確かな味わいとなる「本物」のマテリアルを使うこと。
    また、“陰と陽”の関係性を利用した、奥行きを感じさせる「光」の表現にも高い評価を得る。
    クラシックでありモダン、デコラティブながらシンプル、妖艶でいて温かい……。

  • Takuma Inoue
    1984 – Born in Kyoto
    Takuma Inoue at the age of 16, travelled to America alone, and spent 7 years in New York City.
    Raised in Kyoto, he had been given a deep respect for tradition and its value in modern society.
    Blessed with this time in New York City, his eyes were also opened to the beautiful diversity in everything from design to people themselves.
    After graduation from the Fashion Institute of Technology FIT in New York he made his way home to Japan.
    On return he was quickly accepted at the well-known Glamorous co. ltd.
    and under the tutelage of its owner and head designer travelled worldwide to destinations such as Qatar, China, Taiwan and the US. In 2012 he started his own firm, everedge inc. In its name he gave a constant reminder of his design philosophy:
    Ever – timeless
    Edge – at the verge
    In other words, to be at the pinnacle of design in that present, while designing timeless spaces.
    The contradiction in interior design arises with time, trends seem to reign, but there is design that is timeless.
    Forever beautiful, such design is fit to live through the ages and not be tossed out like so many fads. For Inoue, there has to be a philosophy that doesn’t stiffen and contract but is constantly flowing.
    For that very reason ideas are infinite. On the macro level, a long, broad, flexible design philosophy emerges as Inoue strives to stay above the fads. On the micro level he tries to find the intersection with such a broad timeless design and the clients wishes. These two points define everedge’s fulcrum. Tangibly speaking, his designs hope to use “true” materials as much as possible; those that patina with time, those that grow more and more beautiful with use.
    As well, light and shadow are of great importance. With long deep shadows one also perceives the length and depth of light in his work.
    He strives to merge the cultural patina that he has received throughout the world.
    Classic motifs on a modern canvas, decoration delivered simply, fascinating but comforting.
    Seemingly opposing pieces fit together seamlessly, that is the original idea of everedge, inc.
