Our five Tokyo designers who I toured with for the night were Alastair Townsend, Interior designer, Yukihiro Shoda, Motion designer, Kazuhiko Hayakawa, Product designer and Miku Sega, Interior Designer. It was hilarious we were all running around taking pictures and filming at each location.
Our first club Air in Daikanyama district. This is the club Sofia Coppola famously shot some scenes of "Lost In Translation."This was one of my favourite club visit. The interiors had a large dance floor and on the sides there were private areas you could sit with friends and hear each other talk. We got there a tad early so the dance floor was begging for more dancers.
The clubs we visited in the night were all located in basements in residential areas with each venue having a quiet sign
Next stop was Unit. Here, the music and the crowd are completely different.
One of the simple design highlights for me were the lockers provided at each venue. It has always been my biggest drag when I go out dancing is having my handbag and not knowing what to do with it.
|Next stop is the Ebisu district, destination Liquidroom. The first area is a large quiet bar; the music isn't too loud and it's easy to relax and interact with others. Downstairs there's a food area, once again almost without music, where club-goers can relax, drink, smoke and eat traditional street food. In the next room, a large dance floor is crowded with revelers drawn to the music played by Mungolian Jetset, a bunch of colorful and pretty peculiar guys in love with the sounds of the Italo Disco and '80s music. The crowd really appreciates the performance, dancing and screaming throughout.|
OMG we made it. I can't remember the last time I did an all nighter.
