The designer of fabric panel, Issui Ogino

The design of the panels is taken from the original design books of a Japanese designer and painter, Issui Ogino, who created a wide range of novel and creative designs in the early 20th century.  His designs were free from existing thoughts and he is regarded to be a member of the Japanese painters's group, Rimpa.  He also took the essence of art nouveau and created new designs. His works are still fresh to our eyes in the current time.  The panel is a work synthesized from two classic Japanese art forms, Yuuzen dyeing and Rimpa design, woven together across time.
