Johnny Strategy of Spoon & Tamago's Japanese Design Picks

Published as: 
Eastern Promise
Johnny Strategy, of Spoon & Tamago, has been reporting on Japanese design and culture since 2007. Two years after the Tohoku earthquake, he sees the country taking an optimistic turn.

When we talked with him, Strategy reported that “Japan’s fashion and design industry experienced a dramatic lull following 2011. People were mourning, shunning bold colors for a more subdued palette. But now the culture is warming up to a more lustrous and bright aesthetic as a way of celebrating the beauty of a lost person’s life.”
