As do the rapidly expanding ranks of BLINK’s clients, among them legends of luxury like Conrad, Hilton, Jumeirah, Langham Place, Le Méridien, Sheraton, Westin, Banyan Tree, The Venetian and The Luxury Collection.
Nagata has spent two decades at design’s cutting edge, testing limits, winning plaudits, pushing room envelopes and exploring space.
As his visions have become reality in many of the world’s hotspots, he has built up an enviable track record of success, a coterie of contented clients and a growing reputation as a speaker of insight and originality.
His recent accolade includes the prestigious 2012 Hospitality Design Awards for Conrad Sanya Haitang Bay.
Educated at the University of Hawaii, Nagata cites Sri Lankan design luminary Geoffrey Bawa as the enduring influence on his philosophy of design, and the mercurial mind of author Malcolm Gladwell as a source of inspiration.
