Designing Design by Kenya Hara

On occasion I’ll get books sent to me by publishers for review. Designing Design by Kenya Hara was one book that I chose from the catalogue of Springer to take a look at. My actual review on the content will come soon enough, but I thought I’d give a quick glimpse with a couple photos that I took of the extremely well crafted book. The first thing that I noticed was its tactility. The weight, the paper and the overall whiteness really gave me the sense that this book was of high quality. Why I wanted to read this book was in part b/c of the new MUJI store that is opening in NYC in November, and in part b/c I just don’t know that much about Japanese design. From what I hear, Kenya will also be speaking in tours in the not so distant future, though I don’t have anymore information than that. Kenya is speaking November 29th in NYC. Stay tuned for the actual book review from me…

    Hara will also be giving a talk and booksigning at Rizzoli in NYC on November 30th from 5:30-7:00 pm. It’s just been announced, so the chances of getting in and getting a book signed are still good.

    31 W. 57th is the address.
