WHERE THEY CREATE / Japan ( 2017)
By Frame Publishing

An insight into the environments and working processes of the most creative minds in Japan.

Paul Barbera presents his next volume in the Where They Create series – this time with a different approach, by exploring the theme of his series through geographical locales. Reinvigorated by his first visit to Japan in five years, he makes this country the starting point of this new volume. Through the lens of creative spaces, Barbera chronicles his journey as he uncovers how contemporary Japanese design, art and creative thinking, has influenced and inspired the world (and vice versa).

FROM NY TIMES:
Paul Barbera shoots slick interiors for clients like Elle Decoration and Vogue Living. But before he ventured into the studios of the 32 designers in his new book “Where They Create” (Frame Publishers, $45), he begged them not to clean up. “It’s not like messy wall, messy table, pencil on floor and rubbish near door equals great artist,” Barbera insists, but those intimate details make for rich material. Matali Crasset’s personal library, Maarten Baas’s prototypes and even the crudely fashioned cardboard strip that keeps Confetti System’s air-conditioner from jostling its hand-cut garlands reveal what it’s really like inside a designer’s world.
