Igokochi, the Japanese term for cosiness, represents the intimate space where one feels at ease. Haruki Murakami's interior designer Nakamura Yoshifumi once referred to igokochi as "an essential space every home should have where one can nurture and be indulged in one's own dream in solitude."

Architect Manfred Yuen, winner of Perspective’s 40 under 40, 2011 and one of the 6 guests, describes lighting as crucial for his interpretation of  Igokochi. “Lighting turns a room into home,” explains Yuen.
