“ When I arrived in Tokyo for the first time, I was fascinated by the colors that pervaded the streets of the city, it was in that
when I decided to move to Japan. An impressive amount of shop signs, suspended electrical cables, flashes
blue sky interspersed by volumes of buildings, all these things together, created three dimensional "overlaps" in the vision
of the city. The overflowing of the most various colors invaded the streets, gave strength to the space and generated a complex depth.
These indelible experiences of colors and overlays have been the inspiration and the essence of my 'shikiri' concept design, which
means dividing the space with colors. "
