Blog Review: Spoon & Tamago

As someone who works for an art magazine, I try to keep abreast of the latest in Japanese design. One website that I am particularly fond of is Spoon & Tamago.

Created by husband-wife team Johnny (Tamago) and Tomomi (Spoon), this English-language design blog “attempts to comprehensively cover all aspects of Japanese design from fine art and architecture to product and graphic design.” The contributors do their own research and translations; since they focus on aggregating recent and original content, Spoon & Tamago plays a critical role in design-blog world and is often cited on Design Milk, Moco Loco, and Inhabitat. I first encountered the site when I was researching designer Ryosuke Fukusada and his projects Sapore dei Mobili (with Rui Pereira) and Net Lamp.

Spoon & Tamago covers everything from design contests to cutting-edging architecture to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu‘s videos. Don’t know where to start? For a brief overview of who’s who in Japanese contemporary art and design, the fields covered on the site, or Japanese architecture, check out the Explore page.

    That’s cool. Man, that mini furniture waffle iron is amazing! I’m not a big waffle guy, but I would totally make and eat those.
