We love the luxurious Ritz-Carlton hotel in Tokyo with its beautiful interior finishes and most careful attention to artistic details. The Ritz-Carlton Suite inspires us to create the Japanese carpet pattern based on Kumiko Carpentry. The Suite is located on the 53rd floor of the hotel, right in the middle of Roppongi Midtown of Tokyo. The suite is considered the finest and most expensive lodging at the property and is 300 square meters in size.
We are inspired primarily by the Art Kumiko geometric patterns used to set the room’s elegant mood. Kumiko Art is a type of Japanese craft that uses woodworking carpentry to assemble pieces of wood in architectural designs. In the Ritz-Carlton Suite, the headboard is constructed using Kumiko Art, all made up of smaller, intricate geometric patterns.
When you look closer at the geometric shapes, you can see that around eight types of geometric shapes are used. These include the Asanoha Hemp Leaf pattern, which promises good luck for the hotel guests, Goma’s sesame pattern, Sakura cherry tree, and other classical patterns created by Tanihata craftsmen. The rare type of natural wood material used for the headboard is Kamidai Cedar, and it makes a very textural feeling of organic bark to the touch.
These geometric woodworking patterns are translated onto the carpet design that resembles Japan’s mountainous regions. The different types of Kumiko carpentry techniques are all painted in different colors and create a larger image of the mountain peaks with the black hemp leaf pattern.
We envision this elegant custom carpet for example in a refined guestroom design or a sophisticated boardroom.
