For the second feature in a four-part collaboration with K-Swiss Japan, showcasing interpretations of classic style, filmmaker Jake Davis met with barista Katsuyuki Tanaka. Owner of Tokyo’s espresso purveyor Bear Pond, the former ad man shared his own philosophies on life alongside his passion for craftsmanship and their relationship to one another. Tanaka’s musings provide a unique take on what it means to be “classic” and why traditional techniques and notions of ingenuity stand the test of time.
