Beauty by Design: Elements of Japanese Style

May 31, 2014  •  2 Comments

Being in Japan is an intensely visual experience, one that draws travelers -- especially artists -- back again and again. Among the primary elements of Japanese design are simplicity, functionalism and minimalism. The color sense of Japanese designers and other artists is unparalleled.

I have a deep appreciation of Japanese aesthetics and design, in particular packaging, textiles, ceramics, calligraphy and architecture. From playful to serious, colorful to monochromatic, below are a few designs that caught my eye during my recent travels.
