Cuboism is a coined term of Cubo + ism, not related to Cubism. It came from the name of Masahiko Cubo.

When I started my office from the architect 's office in 2002, I began to think more about art expression. I like the world where sculpture and design were mixed by making works close to arts and crafts. Consider new types of handicrafts considering exhibitions and sales on the Internet. It leads to the art of making pieces one by one in the category of collection.

Cuboismとは Cubo + ism の造語であり、Cubismとは関係ない。Masahiko Cuboの名前からきている。
