This guy produces the most meticulously crafted modern homewares, deftly melding pop-art with 400 year old lacquer wood techniques — all set on careful display in his own hand-built boutique in a quiet backstreet straddling Harajuku and Aoyama. He tells me he covered the walls and ceiling himself with 1,500 pure white, prefabricated melamine, square-based pyramids and a lot of glue. I can’t wait to get home and do the same to everything!
