Shoji Screen Tables
Japanese Tenugui

Featured work includes tables created and designed by Woodman Shimko. The tables are made from vintage shoji screens from Japan. Pipe wrenches, car jacks and other industrial items are used in a way not seen before. Designed as coffee tables or hall tables, they take on a modern, yet retro look in any home.

The use of Japanese tenugui has been around for hundreds of years. Originally and still used today as hand towels, the collection of Woodman Shimko shows how this fabric art form has changed over the years. This collection is from 20 years of collecting them in Japan, from galleries, museums and art shows.

In addition to the tenugui collection, Shimko has designed wall hangings from paper stencils used for printing kimono fabric. These stencils are from the 50’s and 60’s.
