A walk in­side KISH isn’t just a walk in the newly re­vamped show­room of award-win­ning fur­ni­ture de­signer and renowned vis­ual sto­ry­teller Ito Kish; it’s also a tour show­cas­ing the world’s best in home, life­style, and fash­ion.

What is news is that it just opened the doors of its ex­clu­sive Ito Kish show­room to the pub­lic. It’s a move that not only ben­e­fits lo­cal clients but also cus­tomers from abroad who visit the Philip­pines to view Ito’s col­lec­tion. On the se­cond floor of the 90-sqm show­room is the for­mer of­fice space that is now de­voted to Ito’s three col­lec­tions: Basil­isa, Balus­ter, and Rosario. The star of the Balus­ter col­lec­tion and the iconic piece that fa­mously “started it all,” the Gre­go­ria, is a trib­ute to Ito’s mother. He nar­rates, “I named my very first piece af­ter my mother, and I guess it’s my way of pay­ing re­spect. I did not know the Gre­go­ria will garner any award when it was first re­leased in March 2012 at Manila FAME, so in a way, it sort of im­mor­tal­ized my re­spect for my mother.”
