“ When I arrived in Tokyo for the first time, I was fascinated by the colors that pervaded the city streets, it was at that
Because I decided to move to Japan. An impressive amount of shop signs, overhead power lines, the flash
blue sky interspersed by volumesof buildings, all these things together, they created 'overlaps' three-dimensional vision
of the city. The overflow of the most various colors invadedthe streets, gave strength to the space and generated a complex depth.
These indelible experiences of colors and overlaps have been the inspiration and the essence of my design concept 'shikiri', which
means dividing the space with colors. "
