Kind words from our clients

Mr. Abiko designed our retail display area ... The warm, natural wood and earthy colors welcome people into our nursery ... Mr. Abiko created a design that captured the stillness and beauty of the Japanese display ... with many people complimenting us over the years on the peace and beauty they feel in this room.

I believe Toshio's training in Japan gives him an advantage. He thinks a project through to the last detail, right from the beginning. This saves time and money! He has developed his skill to build "hybrid" projects, blending Japanese and American cultures together into new and beautiful designs.

My Bamboo Gate is the first in my neighborhood and it looks Very Elegant. Bamboo gates have a very long life, are light in weight and looks Exotic. As always I have high praise for Toshio's workmanship.

Toshio Abiko

Designer and Owner, Design Kyo

Toshio is a veteran in commercial interior design with 16 years of experience in Tokyo. His work has been featured in Japanese industry magazines. He is particularly knowledgable about restaurant operation and kitchen design, as he has designed for a major Japanese restaurant chain in the past.

After coming to the US, Toshio became more interested in Japanese traditional designs. He has developed a minimalist style based on the idea of mu, “the naked spirit” or “nothingness.” He now designs zen-inspired spaces for residences as well, hand-crafting custom bamboo fences and furniture.
