Bliss

ncm-blog

After the Future Design Days event we went to Bliss for a quick beer (I had a Cider since I prefer it instead of beer). I like this place. They serve really good food, the staff is nice and when there’s a party, you can really party. I have always wondered how they managed to keep the modern interior so nice and clean, despite the hard partying?

Future Design Days

ncm-blog

Tonight I went to an short introduction event for this years edition of Future Design Days, a design festival in the small town of Boras, south of Gothenburg. I visited the event last year, had a jolly good time and was both impressed and surpriced by the magnificant arrangement. Along with many others it seems, since Future Design Days won the “event of the year”-award at SHIE + Event Solutions 2003 conferences.

The event is organized by the lovely people at Futurelab and this year they were kind enough to take us in as partners. The event takes place in November and I am really looking forward to spending some quality time with the worlds design elite. For you japan-freaks Astrid Klein & Mark Dytham may seem familiar since they are based in Tokyo. Also Kym Barret (costume designer for Matrix etc.) might interest you – just to name a few.

Introduction #2

ncm-blog

This is where I live (top-left apartment on the ninth floor) together with my friend Ola. Our small tokyo-sized apartment is situated in a suburb to Gothenburg, Swedens second largest city. This picture is taken from our tram-station. I love the functionalistic architecture of our building and I try to photograph it once every day from the same spot.

Introduction #1

ncm-blog

This is me now. My name is Jesper Larsson and I’m the brand new guestblogger at Tokyo Boy. First of all: big shout out to my main man in tokyo, mr Jean Snow who let’s my share my swedish life though this homepage. This despite the fact that he knows I’m rather selfcentered and egocentric and will use this oppertunity to promote myself and my projects (Please let me know when you grow tired of me). Let the blogging begin!

Juon 2

Even the giant signs are scary. This is painted, which is what they do at most theatres.

Update (16/08/13): The photo is unfortunately no longer available. I’m sure it was pretty scary.

Chinsukou

This is bag of Chinsukou cookies, which are a specialty from Okinawa. I picked them up, as well as other goodies, at a small Okinawan fair at Ikebukuro station last night. They’re usually hard to find, even in Tokyo.

Update (16/08/13): The photo is unfortunately no longer available. They’re awesome cookies though.
