VIENNA DESIGN WEEK Tour
Shopping tour hosted by Megumi Ito
According to Megumi Ito, who was born in Germany but raised in Japan, her decision to start a career as designer was inspired by a silkscreen print and a gallery owner. She learned her trade at Viennas University of Applied Arts and has since been very successfully designing lamp shades and other light objects. Many of her pieces grace the interior of well-known hotels and boutiques around the world. She has lately been shifting her focus towards designing fashion, packaging and accessories that masterfully combine European and Japanese influenes and are, of course, all handcrafted.
