AUTHENTERIOR – TOKYO
Esther first met Kumiko in 2015, when she was visiting the UK with a fledgling business concept – to bring the best of British interior design to the Japanese market.
Strict import regulations for electrical goods were navigated by Curiousa providing glass only, and for Kumiko to source, with Esther’s collaboration, a Japanese based supplier for the electrical fittings.
Since then, Kumiko and her now flourishing interior design company, Atelier Favori, has acted as Curiousa’s sole agent in Japan.
“Working collaboratively gives another perspective and I love the unexpected creations. It’s great to be able to work alongside other designers to realise a shared vision.”
