In the 1920s, during the art deco era, Japan was experiencing a different kind of revolution: women empowerment was at its peak. There was the emergence of the Moga—the liberated, free-thinking Japanese woman who wore westernized clothes. For Misty Floro and Pai Edles of Morfosis Design, there is no better inspiration for the modern-day Moga than the Japanese hip-hop dancer and choreographer Koharu Sugawara in designing this one-bedroom unit.

“We believe that the modern girl is one who takes risks and is not afraid to express herself. She is brave and free, and her home reflects these characteristics,” say Misty and Pai.

An outstanding feature of the unit is the ingenious use of paper core tubes. The design duo shares, “We were inspired by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban who uses paper core tubes in his designs to build, for example, churches or temporary homes for disaster relief.” Get ready to see a distinct interpretation, which marries the Japanese and Scandinavian design philosophies to create a balanced and beautiful space.
