the beautiful new klala store opened in tokyo yesterday. i have loved the owner tokio’s online shop for years. he sells our lines & shapes books, sian keegan’s dolls, along with a really amazing collection of vintage ceramics. i recently designed a new logo for klala (you can see it, small, in the top photo). i like to read tokio’s klala blog, even if i can’t read the text! it’s sort of fun to piece together and guess what he is talking about. i only wish i could visit the store in person. it really looks like a dream store.

  1. Oh, I wish I could go to Japan! But I will go to Berlin for a workshop in Japanese Woodblock printing – your book on printing has greatly contributed to my interest in printing. Thanks!

  2. … another small remark: the ceramics in this Japanese store are for a large part Scandinavian 1960 – 1970s design, we all had them in our homes and they strongly remind me of my childhood. It's such a strong link between Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, Norway) and Japan when it comes to design.

  3. I really love the logo! And congratulations on the show, I'll have to go check it out sometime soon.

  4. Ohhh…what a great ceramic in your pictures…they look very Scandinavian…I would love to go to Japan one day
