Hashimoto will present her work under on a stand calle Books, which is a collaboration with designer Tatsuo Yamamoto.
Here's some text from Hashimoto:
Last year, I was honored to receive the Design Report Award Special Mention, for my “Thin Chair”. I am happy to inform you that I will be joining the SaloneSatellite again this year.
In 2009, I will be joining the exhibit with a design platform—books. The design platform is created by Tatsuo Yamamoto and Jun Hashimoto and will participate in the Milan SaloneSatellite 2009.
