TOTO liked the design language we created so much, the brand asked us to create the interiors concept for its new European HQ in Düsseldorf. Our idea was ‘Japan comes to Europe’.

For example, traditional European oak was used to construct a simple but sophisticated reception desk that was surrounded by pristine white Corian® surfaces in keeping with the Japanese brand’s ‘Clean Technology’ ethos. Elsewhere, small details such as door handles that appear to vanish into a recess when not in use symbolised TOTO’s own ingenious thinking.
