"Legendary Belgium antiquarian and art collector Axel Vervoordt’s interiors represent some of the most coveted rooms from layered and luxurious to monastic and minimal, reflecting the influence he derived from the Buddhist principle of “contradiction.” In Wabi Inspirations (Flammarion) Vervoordt, a student of Zen, gives his personal take on an ascetic developed in the twelfth century that advocates simplicity, authenticity, and imperfection. Vervoordt, working with Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki, uses natural materials to maximum effect as brilliantly seen in 350 dazzling color illustrations." ~VANDM.com

HASH(0x911bb924) von 5 Sternen Pretty Book, Awful Content - Unless You Are A Millionaire! 13. April 2011
Von Robert E Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First, this book is constructed of beautiful materials. The paper weight and texture are amazing and of finest quality. The photographs are beautifully reproduced and are essentially the best part of this book. The text itself is awful, and could benefit from the heavy hand (red pen) of an editor. All the pages of text could be condensed--removing all trite phrases and zen-style attempts at platitudes--into perhaps two meaningful paragraphs. This volume is the absolute height of pretense and artifice.

In the modern world of everyday people, wabi-sabi is a concept that can be used to improve our lives. Wabi-sabi is a concept originating from Japan which stresses three important values for objects surrounding us: Impermanence, Imperfection, and the Incomplete. Before this book came out, I had never seen the first word used alone. Wabi means essentially "humble," and is the absolute wrong title for the book and its concepts. The book shows pictures of generally empty lodges, tea houses, and retreats--and these dwellings are invariably set on a lake front, or next to the ocean, or feature a stunning view of the Alps through its unadorned window. Space--affording a house (or chalet, or loft) and then keeping it empty save perhaps a stack of rocks or one vase--is the ultimate luxury in this world. This book purports to idolize that which is humble: A retreat on the side of the mountain, where guests are made to pad single file across the grounds and then step into the tea house. But a European retreat, its grounds, and associated tea house are a mark of unattainable luxury! So too are two barns featured in this book. Both barns make their way to Europe; but one of them is commissioned and built in Japan first.

The next time -you- have a barn designed, commissioned, and built in another country--and then have it shipped to your estate in Belgium--I suggest you reach for this book, because it provides some ideas for how to furnish it [one wingback chair, one roughly-hewn porcelain water vessel; done!]. The rest of us without millions in discretionary funds will simply select and use companion objects that contain and reflect the cherished values of wabi-sabi for our meager, normal, average lives. One need not be a millionaire (or billionaire) to enjoy them.

HASH(0x911bb8f4) von 5 Sternen flawless concept but inappropriate quality 7. April 2011
Von Julia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
It's a really inspirational book and is a must have for worshippers of Axel Vervoordt. The concept, layout and texts are perfect. I gave 4 stars for this book only for one reason - publishers didn't consider the quality of paper - all the photos on this paper loose most of details and look too dark. It's really upseting because in minimalistic interiors each of details and textures of materials are important.

HASH(0x911bf594) von 5 Sternen Wabi , Vervoordt , Inspiring, a Visual Tour 20. August 2011
Von Mark Singer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great book. It visually explains the beauty of imperfection, textures and the qualities that time imparts. It is not making reference to the cost or origin, just a feeling. The raw beauty. The spare sense of space. The elimination of competitive elements so each one becomes important. There is a mood a feeling that is conveyed that makes us more sensitive to things we see.

HASH(0x911bf528) von 5 Sternen Picture book of how the extremely wealthy mimic the very poor 21. November 2014
Von Nora Sline - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The photos grab you initially. It has a quiet presence; however, the book is more in praise of Vervoordt that a work on wabi. About halfway through, I found it rather repetitive and drab. The expense the author and his clients go to in creating dwellings to mimic the rural poor of Japan is really rather depressing and selfish. Moving an entire barn from Japan to the Netherlands? The environmental cost alone is staggering. Only the obscenely rich can afford to be that "poor". They are more Marie Antoinette playing at being "simple" than people who embrace the true concept of wabi

HASH(0x911bf678) von 5 Sternen a reflection of a deep understanding of Wabi 29. Juli 2012
Von jan kersschot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a European, it is hard to understand the true nature of Japanese culture. Still, some people know how to get into the core of that culture and appreciate the qualities of simplicity, respect for natural elements, and bring this into our homes -- without any posing or pretending. This book is an exeptional example of someone who is deeply inspired by Wabi.
