Casement window

Casement windows open by rotating horizontally to the left and right from the center, taking either the left or right edge as an axis. Some open into the interior, while others open onto the exterior. Both the left and right panels have the same dimensions: those that only open in one direction are called kannon-biraki(“goddess of mercy”), while those where one side is larger than the other are called oyako-biraki (“parent-and-child”). The ones opening in only one direction used in France since the 16th century are known as French windows. 

Index of Window Sounds and Movements 

For this project, we sought to extract and observe the sounds and movements associated with the opening and closing of windows, in order to shed more light on how we perceive a “window” through our ears and eyes. A Glossary of Window Sounds and Movements is the first research project of “Windows Products Inside,” carried out as a collaboration between the Window Research Institute and product designer Yoh Komiyama, with video imagery created by Tomohiro Okazaki.

 

両開き窓  

戸がそれぞれ左右の端部を軸に、中央から左右に水平回転する開き方。内側に開くものと外側に開くものとがある。左右の戸が同寸で1方向に開くものを「観音開き」、左右を大小の戸にするものを「親子開き」という。16世紀以降フランスで使われている掃き出しの観音開きの窓を「フレンチウィンドウ」と呼ぶ。

窓の音と動きの図鑑

「窓」の開閉する「音」と「動作」を抽出・観察し、私たちが耳や目で「窓」をどのように認知しているかを解き明かす取り組み。「窓の音と動きの図鑑」は「Window Products Inside」の最初となるリサーチプロジェクトで、プロダクトデザイナー小宮山洋と窓研究所との協働で行われており、映像表現を岡崎智弘が作りあげている。
