Big in Japan
I recieved an email from my friend Marina Bautier yesterday , www.lamaisondemarina.com,
and she mentioned that my Companion tables, which were re-editioned in Japan last year by Duende www.duende.jp, after being out of production for a few years, are now also being sold in Japan by Idee for whom she has designed a couple of pieces. www.lamaisondemarina.com/Idee2.jpg.
I think it both strange and marvelous that the Companion tables have found a new and appreciative home in Japan. It was oft suggested that they had a certain 'Japanese-y' quality when they were created in the workshops at BCUC in late 1999 so I really like the circularity of it all.
I'd also really like a trip to Japan.
