About the Author

Founded in 2018, I IN Inc. is an internationally acclaimed Tokyo-based design firm. I IN pursues the world of modern luxury within a wide range of spatial design fields, including retail, restaurants, offices, residences and installations. The design process begins by delving into the mindset of clients and understanding their core values to identify intrinsic elements of their individuality. Every communication and dialogue with clients and collaborators contributes to interiors that bring new brilliance and experiential values to light, color, materials and gravity. In reawakening the senses to these universal and intangible elements of design, I IN Inc. creates inspired spaces that evoke a new vision of richness for the world of the future – one grounded in the sublime beauty of its interiors.
