Manhole Collection: London, Tokyo & New York
18th century traditional kimono artisans found inspiration in everyday life, such as the natural beauty of fish scales, flora and tortoise shells, and distilled them into iconic patterns.
I am an ardent believer that inspiration and moments of happiness is found everywhere, and that beauty can be discovered in the most ordinary of places. So I transplanted the philosophy of Japanese artisans into the 21st century and created the manhole collections.
I collected the visual references from the world’s most creative cities – London, Tokyo and New York – and started to remix them. The result is a capsule collection of minimal geometric patterns filled with a bold joyful feeling.
The manhole collection is available in Laptop Tote Bags and Art Prints.
