Upon the request of Sealy Japan Corporation of US Sealy, which has been holding America's top share in mattresses and bed sets for 30 consecutive years, students worked on bed coordination for a Tokyo Showroom exhibition. Two of the students' works, titled "Japanese Modern" and "Luxury," were chosen to be exhibited. Those works also appeared in the interior magazine "ELLEDECO."

From a Teacher

A space in which a person lives has the power to change his/her sense of time, past memories, and even philosophy of life. Being an interior designer is interesting because you can be involved in creative activities which can directly affect people from the inside.
