Being in the kitchen design business, we are always keeping tabs on the discreet lighting world. More often than not, LEDs are the preferable option. Incidentally, we were excited to come across this New York Times article, noting the recent decline in price of LED bulbs.

We've kind of been on a Japanese architecture bender lately. So we were predictably excited to find this project from Kobe-based Tato Architects. Located in Futakoshinchi, Japan, were we struck by the unassuming context, humbly tucked away in an alley.
