Talking about the WTAPS slogan (via Highsnobiety):
“Placing things were they should be” originated as the WTAPS principle for if you create something simple, that is where you end up reaching. That’s basically the whole point of that slogan. But WTAPS is now moving on to a different concept, it came from a Japanese word called “seikatsusha” which we coined the term “lifeist”. A lifeist basically draws no distinction between work, play and learning. And that is actually what WTAPS is trying to strive for – a form of lifestyle.” – Tetsu Nishiyama
I want to be a lifeist. Stay inspired.
