In daily life, people put themselves in a space somewhere. Home, school, work, public institution, commercial facility... In every space, what do people see, experience and feel? We base on people, harmonize every element, like function, things, environment to create a space and the style, and that is our job. We'd love to keep creating the space that makes your life joyful and pleasant, the space becomes more attractive and valuable by people who are enjoying it.
