I was presented with a fantastic opportunity to contribute to Herman Miller's
awesome blog, Lifework, and more specifically to their post called Playlist.
Playlist is an interview-style post that focuses on how music influences our
work and what music we listen to while creating/working. I can attest to
the iconic beauty and comfort of their products so I am proud to have such
an association to them through my design work.

represent Japan, New York's Central Park, and the sights and sounds of

estimated 1 million visitors (quite an audience). Themes for the exhibition were
