I’m heading out for the weekend but I just wanted to post these images as a teaser for next week.
“Bring Forest” (2000) is a concept by Ichiro Katami who, along with another designer, were singlehandedly responsible for bringing about the cafe boom in Tokyo in the late 90s/early 2000s. I’ll be looking at some of their interiors next week, discussing their influence and the lasting impact they have had in transforming cafe culture in Japan.
I love the idea of vegetation as walls. I think it would be amazing to walk through a space like this!
