" 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, overhead electrical cables, flashes
blue sky interspersed by volumes of buildings, all of these things together, created three-dimensional 'overlaps' in 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 overlapping were the inspiration and essence of my 'shikiri' design concept, which
means dividing the space with colors. "
