My friend Yoko (http://www.megropress.com/) was in Sydney this week, so we spent the day together taking in the sights whilst talking, walking, eating, more talking, more walking, more eating…! Anyway, she knows how much I love D-BROS, (http://www.d-bros.jp/) so she surprised me with a little bag of goodies from their new concept shop that has recently opened in Tokyo.
D-BROS (http://www.d-bros.jp/) is a Japanese design studio who specialise in innovative stationery. DB in STATION (http://www.d-bros.jp/) is their new ‘STAMP it’ (http://www.phofa.net/blog/uehara/2011/03/db-in-station-%E7%A5%9D%EF%BC%81%E9%96%8B%E5%BA%97%E3%80%82/) project shop, located at Shinagawa station. There you will find a selection of blank cards, envelopes, notebooks, bookmarks and more, all ready for stamping. With hundreds of stamps to play with, I reckon this shop wins 1st prize for collaborating with its customers! It’s mantra is to ‘Make it, feel it, do it in your own way’. It’s seriously art and retail therapy, rolled into one!
Yoko stamped the bookmark card above especially for me – how sweet! It even has my initials stamped on it. You really can’t buy and give a more personalised card than that. Just another brilliant idea by D-BROS. I can’t wait to visit in a few months time, when I’m next in Tokyo. I’m thinking someone might have to put a time limit on me though, because I have a feeling I could be in there for hours! If only I could stamp you all a card :) xx
