- Material elements
- Transformation of these elements
A Japanese aesthetic term for a situation. Wabi means to magnify oneself. Sabi means silence.
Wabi-sabi describes a state of living in the present moment.
The elaborate design or arrangement creates an extraordinary atmosphere or magnetic field that makes it easier for people to enter the present moment and create the feeling of returning to the inner origin. It is called "Wabi-sabi" in Japan.
