The pulsating particles are scattered in the beautiful air that is unique to the port of the South, and the pores are fully relaxed in the two art districts of the Little Screening, and the desires for the summer are rushing, but I didn’t expect that one of the antidote was actually in front of me – the skylight tree shadow lined up with the “unrelated” sign that was carved into a line symmetry. The two square-like characters seemed to be stable and stable, and the inside was actually a sensory driving force. The bookstore of the phantom drug: in the name of the experiment, the reading of the imagination, the use of books as a bait to seduce the dark desire. Image Courtesy of Wu Guan Books.

Writing style with a pen and ink: London stationery store Choosing Keeping

Photography/ Ya Tien. Cover Image Courtesy of Choosing Keeping. Less than half a century ago, "shopping stationery store" was still a pastime that people loved at the twilight time after school and work. Nowadays, "stationery" has vaguely entered the sunset industry. The word is formed in the shadow of 朦胧. Fortunately, when the digital wave invaded, the true touch of Capricorn's papers once again became the choice of many contemporary people to capture the daily scenery. Near the famous Columbia Flower Market in East London, young store owner Julia opened Choosing Keeping in 2012, gently picking up the glory of the twilight, and collecting it as a glimpse of the sharpness of the pencil tip and the table. Born and raised in France, Julia was a short-lived student in Tokyo. Japan's delicate obsession with pocket items broke into that time, which in turn influenced Julia's unique taste. In the history of stationery design, France and Japan are just two glittering stones; world-famous romantic, hopeless fetishism, exquisite and practical design... This is not only the culture of the two countries. The impression may be the reason why Julia chose Chooing Keeping to land on Columbia Road and become a flower market neighbor. Pushing open the indigo door, Choosing Keeping is like a buddy butterfly that has been hurriedly left by the passers-by. It blooms with the beautiful aroma of the classic study. Creating a store with an aesthetic perspective on life seems to be abstract, but Julia has no restrictions on the sharing of space between flowers and stationery, and the eyes of customers. The petals are covered with fan-shaped wooden pencils and round flowers on the window sill. It is in harmony with the dry flower paper town on the side; the harmonious and harmonious arrangement exudes the right sense of life, and in addition to the stunning, it brings out a strange familiarity that comes close to the desk. The stationery industry is actually on the rise - it may sound strange when everything is moving towards digitalization - but I think stationery can bring a sense of security, after all, a pencil won't cause anything strange; and stationery always hooks Childhood memories... Stationery makes people feel good and heartfelt. When you pass the world, if you really care about the time of each piece, you will definitely see the pen as a portable companion. The biggest item in Choosing Keeping is a wide variety of pencils: the Palomino Blackwing, which is well-known by both animators and architects, has been featured in a variety of colors, and continues to introduce new Swiss brand-name Caran d'Ache pencils. The rare Czech label Koh-i-noor triangle pencils are all available; and many Japanese people familiar with the Japanese red-green pencils, plaques, and Mitsubishi are generously presented in a boxed manner, like one piece from the old days. The gift is as pleasant as surprise and surprise, and the original design can really surpass time and space. Stationery notebooks, art calligraphy props and desktop items that are inseparable from pens are naturally a selection of Choosing Keeping. A variety of envelope letter paper groups carefully protect your old-fashioned sentiment, and the Japanese, English and German stationery carefully selected in the store form a unique set of painters; the bundled bundle of integrated wrapping paper is as eager to start as Reluctant to use, slowly spilling the glass sand leak of macarons fine sand, leaving the most appropriate record for the illusion of Choosing Keeping. Julia...

All Images Courtesy of A day in khaki. Like a silent philosophical speculation, or an ancient map drawn from the lakes and mountains, when we use the senses of the 21st century to absorb the ancient capital of the millennium, the current experience is due to emptiness. Clearer. The shallow stone roads, wooden roof tiles and window sills stretch like khaki-like khaki-like landscapes - Kyoto is a glimpse of the four seasons of the fascinating colors of the four seasons, and the unclear glamour is not deliberately fresh, but reflects the face of the earth neutrally. , with people living in the traces. The hotel brand from Taiwan chose to create the first work in this place, A day in khaki, to sift the fascinating time of the building materials, and summon the sinister aesthetics of Tanizaki Junichiro. The fascinating part of Kyoto is magical, and it’s hard to tell the source of the indescribable attachment and longing; perhaps it’s not a vulgar bird’s nest, a geisha, or just a slanting stop. The bicycle in front of the Machiya - the sun shines and passes through the tires to form a gentle and calm light. A day in khaki is located in the center of Kyoto, the central district of Kyoto. It is adjacent to the two cities that have stood tall since the 17th century. It is easy to reach Shangjing and Xiajing by riding a bicycle, and you can enjoy the scenery of Kamogawa along the way. It is in the area of ​​Shijo-Kawaramachi, where people are boiling. Different from the hotel where tourists can't distinguish between night and night, A day in khaki collects passengers in the form of a package, and entrusts Toda Masaharu Architects to give new life to the embroidery workshop that was completed 120 years ago. The gestures not only melt the gap between the stranger and the whole city, but also dye the khaki from the daily streetscape for the air, creating a sense of belonging that truly settles here and enjoys living. The name is "khaki" (khaki) because our impression of Kyoto is like the gradation of khaki; the city's maple leaves, tea, buildings, temples and ordinary lanes are like this gradient. tone. —— A day in khaki is named “khaki” (khaki) because our impression of Kyoto is like the gradation of khaki; the city’s maple leaves, tea, buildings, temples and ordinary lanes , like this gradient color. —— A day in khaki upholds the respect of Kyoto people for cultural relics, because the old house itself was originally an embroidery workshop, so the cotton warm curtain replaced the room number and the house number, revealing the inner door drawn by the local artist Misaki Rina. Pattern lines; abstract lines on the cloth, coincide with the street pattern that Kyoto is proud of. The modern tables, chairs and beddings, which are carefully selected from a precise eye, are mostly selected from the soft design of Taiwan. They are unobtrusively integrated into the timeless building, like the heartbeat of the ancient skin. The good taste of the year will be a step forward, just like A Japanese in khaki, the Japanese traditional innkeeper culture, which allows the keen and exquisite travellers to absorb the novelty memories every day. Peace of mind. "The beauty does not exist in the object, but between the object and the object between the haze and the light and dark." - Tanizaki Junichiro, "Yellow Praise" Use the narrow structure unique to the Machiya and think about contemporary life thinking, A day in khaki. ..

This is a story about many illusions that come true - the night light of Greece reflects the bright light of your face, lingering in the gallery after the closing, not to look at the exhibition and silently chewing on the ambiguity, but It is the most indispensable joy for satisfying life. Of course, there are also chewing and thinking, and the factors that are enticing and deliberate to forget are integrated into the air to cover the whole body. All the fantasies in the story belong to the Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center. When I walked out of the hall, I suddenly looked back. We met the illuminating minibus 48 Urban Garden.

Cooking a room with a rich flavor: Tokyo Street Corner Cafe, SHOZO Coffee Store

Photography/ Norma Aratani. In the everyday life of Tokyo, which seems to be flying fast, the contradictions between the old and the new are always safe and sound, balancing the cultural heritage of the whole city. The young born after Heisei People, happily operating a small shop, in the newly opened cafe, may also collect the unparalleled style of Showa. In the Nanqing Mountain not far from Omotesando, there is a food and beverage group called COMMUNE 2nd. In the trendy shopping street, it is transformed into a vinyl record player in the old-fashioned tea shop, which harmoniously combines a group of shops that seem to be conflicts and in fact match each other. . The SHOZO Coffee Store is available in the form of a log cabin. It is neither a symphony with a dramatic atmosphere nor a romantic waltz. It may be closer to a light and round piano piece! COMMUNE 2nd's predecessor was COMMUNE 246, which was closed in 2016. After the resurrection of the first month of the Jubilee, it was determined to poke out from the torrent of the great city, catching the crowds out of the Internet, entering the precious moments of real communication, gathering here. It’s a small, lively gathering. This kind of mind is exactly the same as the SHOZO Coffee Store concept chosen from Tochigi Prefecture to Tokyo. "In Tokyo, we hope that SHOZO can be a part of people's daily lives." - SHOZO Coffee's Mio Matsumoto crosses the trendy streets of Omotesando and Harajuku, or walks from the Shrine Gye and the wooden path to Nanqing Mountain. At the SHOZO Coffee Store, a self-baked coffee shop at COMMUNE 2nd, between the authentic Indian curry shop and the gorgeous small bar, you can hold up a small, warm wooden world and boast a pure, rich flavor. As the only SHOZO Coffee branch that is “away from home”, it is different from the first floor of Tochigi Apartment, which sells daily groceries and handicrafts. It is more focused on serving coffee and pastries, including hand-filled nutty aroma. The special coffee with cherry tail rhyme, accompanied by Scone, Madeleine and Pound Cake, occasionally has a baking point like a surprise, the quality is excellent, to meet the greedy of the "color and fragrance" of the visitors. Handwritten monthly calendars on a small square blackboard, and then slowly circle the business and public holidays, as if echoing the space of the SHOZO Coffee Store, everything is so delicate and delicately close, but plain and unobtrusive For office workers, nearby residents and even foreign tourists, they are willing to visit in the evening's snoring time, accompanied by the orange-red breeze that will fall in the setting sun, immersed in a short and pleasant coffee time. We look forward to SHOZO being able to be a place where people can take a break from the stress of everyday life. In fact, I have been stationed in COMMUNE...

The Qiankun in the iron box: picking a place for the photographer, tailor-made for the photographer

Create a dense new landscape in the culture of the whole place. The contrast between ancient and new has stirred up the tension and promoted the richness of modern Japan. As a camera-making country, through the sense of photography driven by caring and curiosity, stories of big and small are brewed in various towns; and the distinctive and specific homes on the streets are just like the coordinates of many stories. So why not let "photography" become the story itself? Classic photography techniques - Chiaroscuro inadvertently lit up the architect's inspiration, and a home designed for photographers was born in Shiga Prefecture. As an inland city that the sea breeze cannot reach, Shiga Prefecture has the largest lagoon in Japan; FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects, which has been established for more than 20 years, has made such a balanced and ingenious talent as The design tenet of "House for a Photographer" - seemingly closed and transparent, small size to accommodate the abundant functions, making the building a natural scene, a private gallery, and a rustic style full of life. . Located in front of the quaint stone-making shrine, facing the solemn torii, the rigid vertical galvanized waves are stacked with solid concrete, which symbolizes the speciality of the photographer's house in a bold, minimalist modernist spirit; the appearance of a metal tin box At first glance, the design is a high-profile design, but in fact it can be used to dispel the dazzling interference of sunlight reflection on the building, so that this house that was completed in 2017 will not be unobtrusive with the traditional Japanese-style bricks that have been around for a long time. The room is side by side, like a fine and smooth bright part of the black and white photo, frank, quiet and dazzling. "There are too many architects who can't think of them from the customer's point of view." - Kimura Hiroshi uses the mystery of natural light and shadow, and reality can be re-created into a richer slice of time by photography; a couple of architects Kimura Hiroshi The desire for design naturally ends up not only by building a striking home, but also from the moving line, building materials and decoration to the needs of the homeowners. The light corridor that converges through the wall steps into the house, and the small window that falls on the side of the window, combined with the floor-to-ceiling windows that lead directly to the garden, is radiantly illuminating the 51-pyeong residence of this floor; warm tones The wooden window sill framed the view from the window and looked up. It was a pleasant picture of a frame that witnessed the illusion of day and night and spring and autumn. Despite being based on modernism, the house is still full of the ingenuity of traditional Japanese architecture with a subtle beauty: with minimal light and decoration, reflecting the proportioned life and work; some of the high ceilings make up the studio The spacious living room with living room, the kitchen and dining room on the side connects the second floor with bedroom and bathroom. In the sound, art works, photographic equipment familiar to the owner, and antique furniture with unique charm, the photographer's house meets the needs of people with plenty of daylight and privacy, not only the plasticity of the exhibition, but also the quality of life. The studio has also made this place an undoubtedly ideal home. The contrast between the dark and the dark in the Renaissance period, through the strong contrast between light and dark to create a three-dimensional effect, which in turn affects the photographic techniques and narrative techniques of later generations. The photographer's house re-deconstructs light and shadow, transforming life and work into a light and comfortable relationship; in the unconstrained space, using the skylight to develop everyday, lead the stars to map dreams.
