Given that it is December and christmas is just around the corner my plan was to blog about seasonal bits and bobs today, but then I saw this beautiful home in Japan by Ondesign and I just couldn't not share it here with you asap! So meet FIKA, a multi task residence of 355sqm. that serves as a house during the week and is turned into a shop during the weekend. I bet your house doesn't do as much, ours didn't for sure. It is just such a unique concept to be living in a place that certain days of the week you can experience it in a whole different manner.
FIKA is located in the neighbourhood of Toshima, Tokyo where its owner hosts a collection of Scandinavian antiques and household items that he puts on sale every weekend. FIKA is a two-storey structure with a high rise shelf that at the bottom functions as the main display shelf for the store, and towards the top it carries these day-to-day objects that the owner uses as well. During the weekend the customers have a chance not only to purchase a pretty object but to meet its story as the owner likes to put it, by visiting this unique space! And fika means coffee break in Swedish, how much more perfect can this place and its concept be?
