House in Hiro

Another fine example by Japanese architects Suppose Design Office, displaying their ability to make concrete beautiful through clever juxtaposition with other materials and the use of light.

Uniqlo UJ Denim

Uniqlo UJ Denim

I am loving the keen pricing on the UJ Denim range from UNIQLO. Their prices are always pretty good but with jeans going from £14.99 to £24.99 that’s darn good value.

Playing with Tradition

Lodge hair salon

Japanese architects Suppose Design Office have completed a hair salon in Hiroshima, Japan, with a band of mirror glass wrapped around the cutting space. Called Lodge, the salon interior features bare wooden furniture, and the mirror is frosted except for areas where clients will be seated.

Lodge hair salon

I love the spartan, raw, elegance of this space and those beautiful barber-shop chairs.
