While in New York in June, I got to meet Doug and his wife Tomoe when they stopped by my booth at Renegade Craft Fair. I asked if they would be willing to show me their studio in Brooklyn and they said yes ! A couple of days later, my band of friends and I made our way to Ditmas Park. He took us through the space, shared his process with us and even gave us a little demo.
Doug's wife, Tomoe Matsuoka, shares the studio as well and her work deals in conceptual, performative, interactive structures / wearables and furniture design. It is fun and full of child magic which is a quality I love.
Also, hello cute clothes. Can I have you?
He ended our tour by showing us the amazing rooftop space with a 360º view of the neighborhood. We could even see the One World Trade Center being built in the distance.
