The Japanese way of life has always stood for a particular type of mindfulness characterized by a soothing minimalism. In interior design, the tatami mat sets out the dimensions and brings forms, materials, and rituals together. Sato sees itself equally as a shop and showroom for Japanese home decor, offering visitors a detailed insight into Far Eastern design and craftsmanship. From silk kimonos, porcelain, wooden sandals, and fine sake to the entire furnishing concept (including tailor-made futon mattresses)—the range leaves nothing to be desired. An in-house carpentry workshop manufactures wooden furniture according to Japanese tradition, though in a contemporary style and mainly from local materials.
