"Sublime" is a comprehensive collection of current Japanese architecture,
interiors, and products that showcases and explores the country’s
uniquely elegant design aesthetic. After the visual excesses of the
early new millennium, there is now a distinct demand for clear and
rational, yet forward-thinking, design—a style in which the Japanese
have specialized for hundreds of years. Today, architects and other
creatives from Japan are masters at designing striking, virtually
transcendent work that seamlessly melds aesthetics, functionality, and
quality. With its opulent visuals and insightful texts by Andrej Kupetz
and Shonquis Moreno, the book examines this distinctive talent for
combining the rational and traditional with the cutting-edge in a way
that seems effortless and even playful.
