To celebrate its 5th birthday, Claska was showing different exhibitions under one roof as part of this year's Tokyo Design Festival's Design Tide. Featured above are Marti Guixe's new Barcelonan brand Mixing Media for which to present he worked together with the escapologist Kinoko Hajime, tying Richard Sapper's Tizio for Artemide and Danse's Cau lamp in lots of knots.
Some impressions of the venue (a converted hotel in Tokyo's Meguro district) with bunny-eared guests and (de)lightful facades.
Freitag showed its company history with (almost) life sized cardboard trucks. Featured below are the rolling shoe last lamp of the Caska Day Shop exhibition as well as some impressions from the Cibone opening, including the Teddy phone chargers.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
