I recently interpreted at the trade show for 'Unveiling Japanese Design' at the Singapore National Design Centre. I met by chance Yoshimi Kemmotsu, with whom we have mutual friends. Turns out we both know Mr. Suzuki, the head of Taito Designers Village, Tokyo. It's a small world!
For those who missed it the show, check out some other wonderful Japanese products at this great shop in Singapore including a beautiful fan exhibition curated by Ikuko Onaka! http://atomi-jp.com/
