Yu Watanabe for Hiromatsu Furniture
*GASP* be still my beating heart. I know it’s Friday and I should be winding down but I can’t help it. Hiromatsu Furniture has released a line of kids furniture and I can’t get enough of this sofa. It’s so free and innocent and fun; as if it was designed by a child.
But get this – it was actually designed by Yu Watanabe, an 80-year old retired professor of design. His impressive resume includes a position as head of board of directors of the Japan Interior Designers Association, as well as professor at the Chiba Institute of Technology. He retired 6 years ago but agreed to take on this one-time project with Hiromatsu Furniture.
