Zen and the art of working from home
Japanese design is renowned for its minimalism, and for keeping things simple and uncluttered.

KI Star Real Estate, a popular housebuilder, began taking orders for the Hanare Zen on 6 September, hoping to find a market among those struggling to work in cramped homes.
