Hiroki Takada/Takada Design

Diamond

Thanks very much to J.P. for introducing me to Hiroki Takada, a Japanese designer currently lecturing at two universities in Nagoya. He has held numerous shows throughout the world, including the current Interiuer06 in Belgium, where he is exhibiting the Diamond Light (above). If you can't get to Belgium before Interieur06 finishes on October 22, you can catch his next exhibition at Tokyo Designer's Week. If that's also out of the question, don't worry - I'll be there all week to bring you all (or at least a lot) of what's on offer.

His earlier designs combined a Japanese aesthetic and Japanese names, for example the YakataTableb shelving system from 2001, the Pata Pata screen (2000), Tatami chair (2001) and my personal favourite, the beautifully minimalist Koushi table (2000), pictured on the right, whereas recent designs tend to look more Western.

All of the designs mentioned above, plus many more, can be viewed at the designer's website.
