The Professional Interior Designers


This new book The Professional Interior Designers, 27 Interior Designers, published by GAP JAPAN, features an interview with me. The question posed was to discuss some remarkable differences between Japan and Europe that impact the prefailing direction with regard to the design of restaurants and retail spaces in these different cultures. The book opens with an interview with the wellknown interior designer Yukio Hashimoto and the pages inbetween these interviews are dedicated to the introduction of the work of 27 interior designers and gives a good impression of current Interior design trends in Japan.

Nebuta-no-ie Warasse in Nikkei Architecture

The February 2011 (no 945) issue featured Nebuta-no-ie Warasse in a two page article. In the same period we collaborated with Nikkei Architecture and Hewlett-Packard on an article published in the March 2011 (no 947) issue. For about two we were asked to test run the large size HP Designjet T2300 eMFP printer-scanner-plotter. The fact that this printer can handle A0 size drawings, that it is also a scanner and its reasonable price-quality ration makes it an attractive machine, provided one has the space. We had to clear our living romm to do the test.
