I was intrigued by the title of this exhibition, which is actually starting tomorrow. A camera futon? What the heck is that? Then I saw the picture and it all made sense. It’s a bed for your camera to rest in while not being used. It’s made by zakuro, a collaborative team comprised of, understandably, a camera geek and a textile geek.
I also fell in love with these incredibly awesome handmade shoes by Hou Leather. Both companies are based in the Kyoto vicinity and the joint-exhibition will be held at Kyoto’s well-known stylish cafe, Urinsya. If you are in the area and like what you see it may be worth checking out. Both teams will be showcasing oldies-but-goodies, along with new designs (futons for digital cameras and polkadot shoes).
