I learned yesterday that along with Sonia, Kouichi Okamoto (Kyouei) will also be selling stuff at the Designboom Mart inside the 100% Design Tokyo venue.

And speaking of Sonia, she’s put up a new Rezidents wallpaper that you can download for use with your PSP.

PMKFA + Nudie Jeans

061026-pmkfanudietee

Here’s a sneak peak at the tee PMKFA has designed for our Swedish Style event, “Nudie Cafe.” The idea was to remix the original Nudie Jeans tees, and I’m rather happy with the result. The final version, which will be sold at the cafe, we’ll have slightly different colors.

INFOBAR2

In the latest message from the KDDI Design Studio mailing list, they announce that October 31 will not only mark 3 years since the release of the INFOBAR, the Naoto Fukasawa design that was the first official release from the AU Design Project, but that they’ll also be presenting the INFOBAR2 concept model, again designed by Fukasawa. I’ll definitely try to stop by, since I should be in the area for other Tokyo Design Week events.
