    Three weeks ago my laptop stopped turning on – the result of an unfortunate incident with a cup of tea 6 months ago.

    It was almost one year ago that I made the spontaneous decision to get on a plane and spend 5 nights in Japan looking for products, meeting with suppliers and observing the Japanese way of life.

I like the power of light and space physically because then you can order it materially. Seeing yourself seeing is a very sensuous act—there’s a sweet deliciousness to feeling yourself see something.” – …
