The designer and founder of goodbymarket Tomohiro Ikegaya was born in March 1982 in Shimizu Ward at Shizuoka prefecture where Mt. Fuji is, that is also the source of his inspiration.

Tomohiro Ikegaya studied architecture and at the same period he acted as amateur musician. He was involved into the opening of new interior stores and he worked in the same field in Tokyo. In 2011 he founded goodbymarket, a design brand, in Shizuoka, Japan, with the aim of improving the relation between products and communication, attempting to create new linking tools.

“I designed this T-shirt just before climbing Mt. Fuji for the first time in my life” says Tomohiro Ikegaya. “This T-shirt has a simple design with only numbers printed on the front side; the number “3776” is the altitude of Mt. Fuji. I drew a blue jaggy inside; flipping up the hem, you can see Mt. Fuji appearing. That T-shirt gave an excuse for an enjoyable conversation with strangers. Since then, when I found something like Mt. Fuji, I have tried to make out of it a work”.

ORUM RESIDENCE BY SPF: ARCHITECTS

Design | January 24, 2022

Perched atop a Bel Air hilltop, Orum is a three-level, 18,800-square-foot home designed to subtly 'float' above its environs. Given its prominent positioning above a relatively developed neighborhood, the motivation behind the design of the home was to create a residence that could meld into its surroundings while maximizing views. The three-story structure, which takes on the shape of a three-winged propeller, is wrapped in glass that mirrors its sweeping views of the Los Angeles Basin, unobstructed from the Getty Center to Long Beach, Century City, and Downtown.
