This Week from Tokyo
by Jean / December 5, 2007

+ With only one month left to get your 2008 calendar, consider Masami Takahashi's Calendar Cube, which can be display in white or metallic black.

+ No window? No worries, with Makoto Hirahara's Bright Blinds light source. Makoto and Shinya Matsuyama were the team behind RGBy (pictured right), a cube-shaped lamp that senses color and glows with the sensed color. Watch the video. Via Core77.

+ Catch the "PROTOTYPE" exhibition (opening this Friday, until December 16) at Keiji Ashizawa Design's new office space, to see product design prototypes from a gathering of 13 Tokyo-based designers. JS
