By Michiko Rico Nose (Author) and Michael Freeman (Photographer).
This Japanese design book, featuring over 200 stunning photographs, captures the delightful, modern style of the Japanese home.
Japan has always intrigued the world with its deceptively simple blending of architecture, landscape and design. Zen temples, the famous tea ceremony, formal gardens, the use of wood, paper and other materials in the form of screens and floors—all have evolved over the years to create a varied, yet indisputably unique style. Japan Style showcases 40 contemporary homes, many never photographed before, and explores the unique Japanese design in all its manifestations. The book is divided into four chapters—
- Reworking Tradition
- Managing Space
- Experimenting with Materials
- Personal Statements
