akari, who is a producer of installations and art spaces in Japan and abroad, also works with various companies to improve their brand image and direct sales promotions has joined chignitta.com as a contributor of “Journal From The City” from France, where she is currently living.
akari-san and I (Junko) met at an interior design event in 2013.At the time, I was in charge of PR for a furniture brand, and she was an invited lecturer. She gave us some ideas on how to create wonderful table coordination, entertaining dishes, and spaces with just a few ideas and familiar items.
In the fall of 2020, she moved to France with her partner in the midst of the lockdown regulations, and her struggles in a different language and culture are a testament to the “indie spirit” that life goes on. akari named the title “petit à petit,” which means “little by little” in French. “Since we came here, we’ve been gradually preparing our lives, building a home, and building connections with people.”, she says.
Traveling abroad is something we have to put on hold for a while, but I’m sure you’ll feel like you’re in France with akari’s beautiful photos. Bon voyage!
