JAPANESE LANGUAGE ONLY
Remote work has increased, and the way offices have changed. However, the base for creating things, the value of the workplace has not been lost. A workshop, atelier, or studio is a special place where new ideas are nurtured and creations are born, and the desk at the center of it is a private area unobstructed by anyone. It is a space that should be called a “sanctuary” in the interior. Special feature "The desk is a sanctuary." I will visit many workplaces to see examples of this.
