The commission was to design the renovation of the interior of a Japanese shop
located in the centre of Amsterdam. Since 1976, the shop has been selling a variety of Japanese
products. With the renewal, the range of items will become a careful selection of exclusive ceramics,
kimonos, Japanese paper and lamps.

The concept of the design is -A Whisper from Japan-. The image of the shop will not be a loud and
over-explicit gesture but rather an expression of subtle elegance and high quality. The basic idea
is that every product conveys a message by its pure being, discreetly, like a whisper.
