Wonderwall Case Studies

Works by a Global Interior Design Firm

Masamichi Katayama Wonderwall studio combines a truly Asian approach to retail with a global outlook that has resulted in worldwide success and influence.

Wonderwall Case Studies is the first comprehensive exploration of the work, process, and mind-set of the Japanese interior designer Masamichi Katayama, founder and principal of Wonderwall, one of the most influential interior design firms in the world. The timely release of this compendium not only celebrates Katayama’s prolific and profound body of work, but honors the designer’s 50th birthday.

Wonderwall’s East meets West approach to retail design has produced integral successes like UNIQLO, the Diesel flagship store, and the futuristic innards of Intersect by Lexus. Highlighting eleven milestone projects in the firm’s fifteen-year history, the book presents rich documentation of a portfolio brimming with international projects, exciting collaborations, and an impressive list of clientele. Visual essays showcase the Wonderwall working culture. An in-depth profile, written by the M+ design curator Aric Chen, provides insight into Katayama’s early years, education, key influences, and major professional achievements. And a final catalog section presents a visual overview of twenty-three additional agency projects, highlighting Wonderwall’s reach and renown. 

Wonderwall Case Studies, edited and designed by Winkreative, is an engaging and exciting book for interior design students, industry dilettantes, and professionals searching for inspiration. Nowhere else has Katayama’s unique approach been so deeply documented.
