Inspired in the traditional motifs of Japanese kimonos and using the symbols assigned to the various mistresses of the 11th century, fashion artist Akira Isogawa created a series of colourful patterns that strike for their modern geometry and brilliant colour schemes. 
The striking patterns are digitally printed on a series of wooden low tables, specially designed by Fukutoshi Ueno to enhance the unique motifs; the geometrical, multi-faceted line of the tables play with the contrast of the different motifs and their traditional yet contemporary nature.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
