“Toto House” at ISH’11.

June 27th, 2011

In March, we finished production of “Toto House“, a corporate film for Japanese sanitary manufacturer TOTO. Directed and designed by Soi’s Uwe Heidschoetter, the film premiered simultaniously on the web and at ISH ‘11 in Frankurt. We rececently received a few photos showing the framework the film was presented in at ISH, and we thought that they looked quite nice. Thank you, Toto.
