Spirit by Yu Hiraoka

A project called Spirit is a camera that fits an elegant bar. Many people bring the camera to record fun times when they go to an elegant bar. And they also dress up to make themselves comfortable or look attractive. This camera is a great item to bring to an elegant bar because this camera is not only for capturing fun times, but also as a fashion item for people who want to look attractive. Hiraoka got the inspiration of this styling from luxurious alcohol bottles.
