O ne very proud mum and a sister were on hand to see Tokyo-based Mark Dytham receive his mbe from Prince Charles earlier this month, for services to his country in respect of architecture and design. Klein Dytham was responsible, among other things, for the inflatable tent design which showcased British talent on a tour of Japan last year, and pulled strings to rescue a big British fashion show in the city when the organisers failed to come up with venue or money. But what do the Japanese make of the firm which, among other things, is also the owner of a micro-brewery? One recent client was baffled, sitting in the practice's workshare office, to find himself gradually covered in white feathers. Looking up, he noticed a naked woman lying in a bath full of the said feathers. 'It was an art installation,' Dytham claims, when I accost him with the story. Meanwhile, he has become one of the city's best known British voices - as a result of a voice-over for a Honda car ad which appears several times a night on Japanese television. Hondas will never cease.
