‘his life is beautiful’ by mile

five upcoming japanese designers bring the ‘new wind from japan‘ to the milan design week 09: jin kuramoto, emiko oki, mile, hironao tsuboi and teruhiro yanagihara. with the theme ‘complementary colours’, exhibition director eizo okada wants to show objects with vivid colours, instead of the natural and white colored objects which you usually find in traditional japanese design.

eizo okada publishes dezain and is also director of ribbon project, who have participated in our designboom mart in new york 2007.
