AND WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT
MAFIA has always had a relationship with Japan, (including our Tokyo retail shop!) but up until a few weeks ago we had never experienced the country firsthand.
It takes time adjusting to Tokyo's narrow streets, tiny living spaces, and constant crowds of people. What initially appears chaotic, however, reveals itself as cohesive and seamless. You realize that Tokyo is probably how most cities will look and feel in the future. It offers a fresh perspective on urban living, and there's design inspiration everywhere you look.
We arrived in Tokyo to attend Gift Show, one of the largest consumer goods trade shows in Asia. With the MAFIA Japan team and our friends from Dumilo as tour guides, we explored the cities' boutiques and markets, Japan's beautiful countryside, and even Ashigarashimo to surf. The trip was productive and inspiring to say the least, and we can't wait to go back.
