I gave Isao a tough brief for my Spitalfields loft apartment which was built in 1800:a floating shelf unit which had all the impact of the Bridge of Light - the Millennium Bridge - but also a shelf that was functional and could hold memories - a nod to the past but an embracing of the future which characterises the apartment. The result is spectacular. Isao combines true craftsmanship with creative genius. He took into account the whole apartment and also added two shelves to complement. Everyone who has seen my 'floating shelf of light', now wants one - comments include : "amazing." "stunning." I think Isao might be very busy in future, but I hope not so busy that he can't come back and do some more amazing work for me!

"Isao made a built in shelving unit for us. We wanted something to house all the children's toys and books whilst retaining an adult feel to the room. The unit and shelves were beautifully made, very precise (even though our sealing sloped a little) Isao then made a second shelving unit for us a few years later. The shelves are very discreetly adjustable and have cupboards below them. It has been very cleverly designed so that we can utilise all the space, despite it being a corner unit. We picked a paint colour which was painted on immaculately. Very pleased with all of the work."
"I was introduced to Isao through a friend's recommendation (always a good start) and it has been a delight to work with him on several projects in my home. Isao's approach is thoroughly professional, his craftsmanship is superb and he has an intuitive understanding of his clients requirements. I look forward to working with Isao again in the future."

"Isao listened to our ideas and produced some clear plans including pictures using clear graphics so that we could actually see the finished product before it was built. Most of the work was done off-site so disruption was minimal. The finished product was fabulous -just what we wanted. We would certainly recommend Isao's professional service."
Andrew & Robert, London
We are extremely happy to have quite a few of Isao's furniture designs in our flat. Isao had great attention to detail and everything that we have asked for has been made exactly as we wanted and fitted extremely professionally. We cannot recommend Isao's work highly enough.

"Isao has done a variety of work for me all of a very high standard. He is talented and very creative especially when offering advice on how an item could look better if slightly tweaked to perfection."
'I am utterly delighted with the many projects Isao has undertaken for me. From initial design discussions to the final installations have been an absolute pleasure. His attention to detail, craftsmanship and knowledge are unparalleled and I highly recommend him'
