After living in Japan from 1992 through 1995, Gilewicz’ interior designs began to reflect the minimalist tendencies of Japanese art with its emphasis on simplicity, ergonomics and beauty. While in the Orient, he learned the importance of creating interiors in harmony with the personal dynamic of his clients. To arrive at that state he used Feng Shui, an ancient art form that is an extension of the human body and the universe, a suggestion that everything in the cosmos is interrelated. As a result of Feng Shui, Gilewicz believes harmony can be achieved between environment, heritage and each being while leading to more sensitively designed individual life spaces. His work appeared in The Best Interiors and Window Displays in New York Retail Stores, a book by Noriaka Mizoguchi (Japan, 1996).
