Tokyo’s New Secret Bar
By February 26, 2010

roku nana Tokyo’s New Secret Bar travel food design

Roku Nana (六 七, or six seven in Japanese) is a swanky new rooftop bar wedged between two buildings in Tokyo’s Roppongi district. Designed by Yasumichi Morita of Glamorous, there are no signs to help you find your way here, just the little clue six seven, which hints at the ward number in the bar’s address. The only way to find it is to know the actual address…and voilà! you’re sipping drinks on chandelier tables, perched on one tiny wedge of rooftop amongst the Tokyo skyline. Now that is glamorous.

Verde Roppongi 3F
7-16-11 Roppongi, Minato-ku
Tel:03-6438-9915

I am digging Hummingbird Bakery’s website design. The bright punchy colors are dreamy, like cupcakes. Mouth-watering food photography combined with sleek, clean design makes this site terribly fun and ever-so-sweet.

Feathers and Ice: the Nordic Fashion Biennale

I love the wicked-cool design of these posters, created for the Nordic Fashion Biennale. The first one was held last spring in Reykjavík, Iceland with a focus on west-Nordic fashion from Iceland, Greenland, and the Faeroe Islands, with over 60 participating designers, artists, and musicians from all over the world. I am a real sucker for Icelandic design sensibility, and I fell in love with many of the designs from the show straight away. Plus I love the unity of the graphic identity—from the website’s animated birds that swoop down to land on the mannequins, to the typography and stunning iconic posters—everything seemed to match the feel of the flowing garments perfectly, some of which loosely resembled the abstract forms of wings and feathers. Can’t wait to see what’s coming up for the next show!
