We had a big international event October 9th at Toyo Kitchen Style in Osaka.It was one of the Machi Decor event which is a huge network event of the interior and design industry and it is held in every October in Osaka. More than 120 companies participate in this unique event. Each company holds a special event during Machi Decor based on one theme and people visit to each showrooms and companies holding Machi Decor guidebook in their hands. The theme of this year was "Home! Sweet Home!"This year, as a president of IFDA(International Furnishing and Design Association), I really wanted to do something exciting and international project.In these 3 years, I've participated in this interesting Machi Decor event and I realized that it's so important to exchange ideas and communication with other designers, artists and people of companies with sharing a good atmosphere in each showroom.IFDA Japan chapter invited 10 American designers from the U.S. and we had a big talkevent and party.
I took a class yesterday at Lexis Japan.It was the most scary class I've ever taken...I was a bit late and my teacher, Michael, was standing at the entrance counter.He looked sooooooo terrible!! I mean he was really sick!!!!!He looked so groggy with red and hollow eyes...Suddenly, I felt scary if it might be contagious...even though he was wearing a face mask.So I kept away from him!!There were a long distance between us and it looked so weird!
