(lonesome breakage hazard)
The starting point of ID toto is a square glass table top. Kinsugi describes a Japanese repair method for ceramics with gold. Shards are reassembled into a whole. The patches are accentuated in gold and new patterns are created. The gold compound emphasizes the flaw. ID toto is dedicated to the fragility of glass and translates the Japanese Wabi Sabi ideology into a contemporary building site.
