Takashi Sugimoto- Super Potato Design
Takashi Sugimoto is the brains behind Super Potato, the interior design company responsible for a majority of Japan’s cutting age commercial and hopitality spaces, as well as a few in the United States and Canada, Like the Park Hyatt Beijing, The Ritz Carlton Montreal, and Stripsteak Las Vegas located in the Mandalay Bay hotel.
Sugimoto started Super Potato in 1971, shorty after graduating from Tokyo University of Fine Arts and Music. The design, thought process, and execution behind Takashi Sugimoto’s firm is indeed in every sense of the word “Super.” As for the meaning behind Potato it alone is simple, plain and humble, yet has vast potential. When combined with a modifier it becomes something never before imagined, much like the architectural structures that Sugimoto modifies to become modern day works of art.
