Sash window 

A window that opens and closes by moving two or more parallel panels vertically over two or more grooves or rails is called a double sliding window, where both the top and bottom panels move. These sorts of windows developed primarily in the context of English stone built houses, and are commonly used even today in England as well as North America.

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.

 

上げ下げ窓 

2枚以上の戸を平行した2本以上の溝またはレールの上を鉛直移動させることによって開閉する窓を「上げ下げ窓」と呼び、上下2枚とも動く。主にイギリスの石造りの住宅で発展し、現在もイギリスの他アメリカで多く用いられている。

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。
