“Today, the fields of designers’ work have become borderless. I myself have developed original furniture lines, lighting fixtures, clocks, jewelry, and other products in addition to interior designs. Whatever I design, however, my idea is derived from the same basic thought: I want to create it because I want it but can’t find it. While our world is overflowing with things today, it is often difficult for me to find exactly what I am looking for to buy. When I can’t find what I want, I make it by myself. Since what I want changes at different times and ages, I never run out of ideas of what I want to make,” the designer said.

Morita came to the manufacture to give the final touch and place the last pampille, an octogonal red ruby, the Baccarat signature. The masterpiece of light is on display at the Yebisu Garden Place.
