We just designed and developed a new responsive website for Luxe and Design: https://luxe-and-design.com/
The hybrid Tokyo/Shizuoka firm run by Kiyoshi Wakabayashi designs beautiful outdoor public spaces.
In addition, they create Rustyval, a sustainable wood-derived material for years of outdoor use.
We were tasked with making a website that feels as light-filled and airy as Luxe & Design’s numerous products by Tokyo’s 10 Planning. We created a UI design that incorporates vertical and horizontal typography and heaps of atmospheric photography.
The website functions as both a professional portfolio of accomplished work by the practice and a sales tool for their products.
The Luxe & Design website also includes embedded video and loads of CSS sorcery.
Their projects include some of Japan’s top architectural sites and publicly acclaimed spaces.
Additionally, the website is completely bilingual in Japanese and English. Check out Luxe & Design here: https://luxe-and-design.com/
