Takashi Sugimoto (Tokyo 1945) graduated in 1968 from the Department of Crafts at Tokyo University of the Arts. He studied metalworking because he says “it was the department with the fewest students”. He is the visionary founder and president of Super Potato Co, and is voluble and candid, but he is not much given to parsing his work, which include the Bar Radio in Tokyo, the Roppongo Pashu Labo showroom, the Grand Hyatt in Tokyo, the Grand Hyatt in Singapore, the MUJI store in Aoyama. The book also includes a section on his ceramics.
