Leonard Koren

Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers


Arguably one of the more difficult concepts to explain across linguistic barriers, this text represents the West's formal introduction to wabi-sabi, a Japanese aesthetic and world view that in essence is about appreciating the beauty of impermanence, imperfections, and incompleteness. With historical context, Koren colorfully explains the origins of the concept, starting with the Japanese tea ceremony.
