Atelier OPA » About us

We believe “Design and hospitality beyond borders” We like to study good design and art and architecture of all over the world. Suzuki, our member architect, used to exhibit in Milano Salone, Italy (2004, 2005, 2006) and Designer’s block in London(2002, 2003 ). Sugihara, as an artist and a researcher, likes to study languages in abroad. Ishikawa, a silent designer, he suddenly becomes talkative as for football. We hope to see you soon in your town!

Award-Winning Suite of Suitcase Rooms from Toshihiko Suzuki Architect

The firm has won a well-deserved design award for the concept. The shortest becomes a kitchen, the middle height one becomes a stowaway office, and the tallest is a guest bedroom. These instant rooms would be useful to anyone wanting to save space (and money!) By occupying the same space several times over. This one is the bedroom. It is also a great option for young renters on the go, an instant take-it-with-you bedroom for themselves, or to accommodate guests. Every guest needs a place to catch up with the world on their laptop. The bed does looks just a tad short for an adult, however. The middle sized “suitcase room” opens out like a shell to become an office. These shelves could be made to stow permanently with another fold up piece in the front to make them bins. The table is cleverly designed to fill both sides of the clamshell when closed.
