PHILOSOPHY

ABOUT Image

We are DAIKEI MILLS.

We create spaces and places. Stores, Restaurants, Hotels. Exhibitions. Installations, Events. Offices and Showrooms. Homes.

With every project, we try to create a space that embody its identity and purpose. We consider our projects success when the space we create end up feeling “not too designed.” Spaces that are simple and to the point; without unnecessary frills.

At the same time, we believe “good simplicity” isn’t just about endless subtraction and reduction. We strive to create spaces that are wrought with purpose and intent beneath the surface. We embed them in the material choice we make, the angles & views we create, and deny. Every detail that are intuitive to use, or intentionally difficult to find.

I remember exploring the woods as a child, and one day finding myself in a particular spot that stopped me. Something about it demanded attention; it felt like it was purposefully designed for a human presence. And how, on another day, exploring again in the woods, I made some carving on a few trees. With that simple act, I made a “space” out of nature.

Those sensations never left me. And it is what I look for through my work with my team and my clients.
