Is a design company established by the Japanese designer Shin Azumi. Its activities covers product, furniture and spacial design, working with a variety of clients on consumer products, furniture, lighting, electronics and audio equipment as well as spacial design for shops, restaurants, exhibitions, etc.Observation + Distillation
Observations are key to development.
We begin by objectively looking at all the phenomena surrounding a brief and try to clarify the key points to develop the project. After distilling the idea, the end result is often purified into a simple solution.Fun + Function
Functionality increases the longevity of a designs life. We look at physical functionality as well as the effect of psychological functionality. We aim to satisfy both within our process.

Interactivity + Theatricality

A design is complete when it is used by people.
Providing a satisfactory, interactive quality ensures a successful design. We always try to create maximum effect from minimal solutions.

However unexpected it appears, Belgrade Design Week grows on the ruins of the modern “old world” , the seeds of genetically modified organisms on the promised land of design. I was there – I am still amazed!
