Since the late 1980s, Tokyo has gained an unrivalled reputation worldwide for being at the very cutting edge of the international design scene. Despite the downturn in the Japanese economy in the mid 1990s, interior design has thrived, fuelled by a rapid turnover in consumer trends and the pressure on urban space. For retail and entertainment venues design is a potent tool, proving itself to be an essential aid in the perpetual jostle for customers and market share. In the last few years, the design stakes have heightened rather than diminished. International companies have also joined the fray by investing heavily in signature architecture in the city. In 2001, the Renzo Piano Building Workshop completed the Japanese headquarters for Hermès in Tokyo and, in 2003, Herzog de Meuron captured the attention of the world’s press with its impressive glass building for Prada in Roppongi. Design City Tokyo features the latest stylish interior design projects in the city. As well as restaurants, bars, shops, offices and homes, it includes a male beauty parlour, a disco for the over 40s and Kengo Kuma’s new temple. The projects range from the internationally renowned to hidden ‘backstreet’ gems. The author’s insider knowledge of Tokyo offers the reader a rare and privileged perspective, imparting both design and cultural insights.

British culture is marked by indelible icons—red double-decker buses, large oak wardrobes, and the compact sleekness of the Mini. But British industrial and product design have long lived in the shadows of architecture and fashion. Cheryl Buckley here delves into the history of British design culture, and in doing so uniquely tracks the evolution of the British national identity. Designing Modern Britain demonstrates how interior design, ceramics, textiles, and furniture craft of the twentieth century contain numerous hallmark examples of British design. The book explores topics connected to the British design aesthetic, including the spread of international modernism, the eco-conscious designs of the 1980s and 1990s, and the influence of celebrity product designers and their labels. Buckley also investigates popular nostalgia in recent times, considering how museum and gallery exhibitions have been instrumental in reimagining Britain’s past and how the heritage industry has fueled a growing trend among designers of employing images of British culture in their work. A thoughtful look at the aesthetic heritage of a nation that has left its footprint around the globe, Designing Modern Britain will be a valuable text for students and professionals in design.

Competition in the design world is ferocious. It's not designer against designer or designer against architect. The competition comes from office supply stores, factory-direct phone numbers, and a multitude of other sources. It is imperative for designers to use marketing and selling strategies effectively. The key to this is the designer/client relationship. This step-by-step manual helps you design the marketing program that best fits your unique practice. Because it is written by a practicing interior designer and business consultant, it is a vocabulary you are familiar with. Mary Knackstedt guides you through all aspects of promoting a design business, including design specialization, promotional resources, market research, and personal interactions. Examples from successful, highly profitable firms make it easy to apply the book's marketing techniques to your own business. Proven strategies help you target the right clients, present yourself and your company in the best possible light during interviews, and build and maintain strong relationships with clients. Business forms such as a design staff questionnaire, meeting planning guides, and the design services outline help keep you on target and can be easily adapted to the specific needs of your practice. Business growth techniques include how to: establish a company profile that attracts clients and accurately conveys the image you want; find clients who are most likely to want your services; "pre-sell" clients so they're more receptive to future sales pitches; budget marketing efforts accurately to avoid unnecessary expenses; set up a reliable customer service operation; handle complaints diplomatically and with minimumproblems; build a better relationship with clients; create proper contracts and letters of agreement; and set prices that are appropriate for your services. Marketing and Selling Design Services is an essential survival guide for interior designers in the 1990s.
