Vegeo Vegeco

I absolutely love the simple design of the new Vegeo Vegeco shop — and no wonder, since it was designed by Masamichi Katayama. The company behind it started by selling produce from the Kyushu region online, and now on top of this physical store (in Tokyo’s Nezu neighborhood), they also offer an app called Vegery for quick deliveries in areas of Tokyo. This is the kind of thing that would make me eat my greens more. More details in this Spoon & Tamago post.

The Bank

the-bank-bar-yokohama-3

I’m not sure if I already new about The Bank or not — a bar located in a space near Yokohama that previously housed a bank — but it’s great to hear that it has re-opened, and it’s a spot I’d love to check out someday. Interesting to hear that it was Masamichi Katayama’s first project after founding his Wonderwall studio (back in 2000). Read more about it in this Spoon & Tamago post.

New Website for Wonderwall

You may have already heard about it — it’s been making the web rounds — but Masamichi Katayama (Wonderwall) has indeed updated his company’s website, enlisting the aid of flash master Yugo Nakamura. The result is quite fun, although I’m never a fan of sites that make you wait while they load. Portfolio sites can maybe get away with this, I guess.
