Lunch with Mr. Oda


I hadn't visited Mjölk (virtually anyway) in quite a while. It's a darling little shop in Toronto focusing on Scandinavian and Japanese design. Two design ideals that I have always thought went hand in hand, as if they are relatives of each other. I find it interesting that two cultures so far from each other can be so much alike.

Juli and John, the owners of Mjölk recently went on the most breathtaking tour of Japan and posted all their travels on their blog Kitka. Like I would, they searched out artisans, designers, makers and collectors of design so it was a true joy to peruse through each stop and visit they had. I singled one out. The photos you see here are all from their visit with Mr. Oda a master historian of Scandinavian design. These are all of his home where he has collected many unknown and rare prototypes from the most well known Scandinavian designers. Head on over to Kitka to read all about it.
