Takahashi often uses unusual materials like the wooden crates that fishmongers pack salmon in. He rescues the boxes destined for the garbage and repurposes them for his furniture. The wood is washed and treated removing any smell of fish, but the special characteristics of the recycled wood remain making each piece of furniture totally unique.
