Tatami living space Interior Design Style Abstract A tatami was not a traditional Taiwanese style mat. It came from Japan when Taiwan was under Japanese rule. Nowadays it is widely used in the living space of residences or offices in Taiwan. However there are not enough studies of how tatamis are used in the living space In Taiwan. Based on literature survey and the perspective of the study of folk tools, this research investigates the ideas of how interior designers use tatamis in the living space, and analyses the methods and concepts of how designers utilize tatamis in their projects.
The literature survey mainly contains cases published in six magazines and four books from 1975 to 2012. There are totally 314 cases, in which 267 cases are using tatamis in the living space. These cases are categorized and analyzed according to the constituent elements of the living space, the purpose of the living space, and the interior design style.
We discovered the following in this study:
1) The tatami space was turned from the usage purpose to the display purpose: Tatamis were mainly used in bedrooms 30 years ago. However, in recent years, they are used for display in spaces near the living room. 2) The size of the living area can influence the function of the tatami space: The tatami space is used for multiple functions in small houses, but is used for a single, specific function in large houses. 3) The constituent elements of the interior space were in Japanese style traditionally, and later turned to diversified styles. 4) When tatamis are used in spaces where large furnitures are required, such as bedrooms, living rooms or study rooms, tatamis can be used as floor mats. When tatamis are used in public or guest spaces, such as tearooms or guestrooms, the room can be decorated by glass doors or can have no door. When tatamis are used in relaxing spaces, such as family rooms, Zen rooms, or children's play rooms, the floor is raised and tatamis are put on it. It makes people easy to sit or lie down on the tatami. 5) When the tatami space is decorated in Japanese style, the tatamis have black frames in accordance with the traditional Japanese design. Tatamis are also placed in the traditional Japanese arrangement, and they are for sitting and lying purposes. 6) When the tatami space is in Chinese style, the space is decorated with dark colors and usually has Chinese style furnitures. Besides using tatamis for sitting and lying, there are also tatami cushions or tatami floor mats. 7) When the tatami space is in modern style, the space is decorated with vivid colors, and tatamis have no frames. Tatamis are arranged side by side or in free styles. 8) When the tatami space is in mixed styles, the space is used for multiple functions. Tatamis are arranged in free styles. They are used as cushions, floor mats, or for sitting and lying.
Keywords: Tatami, living space, constituent element, Interior Design Style, the study of folk tools.
