Shuwa Tei, designer of the Amadana housewares line, compares his product designs to Japanese course meals called kaiseki. "There should be different flavors and textures, varying notes on the palate. And in the end, all these elements will gather to form one overall impression. But like kaiseki meals, I want my designs to be light, easy on the eye but not always easy to fathom. Satiation is one of the things I try to avoid". Thanks to Elly for sending the article on Shuwa Tei.
