After studying Japanese painting art in the Art College in Kyoto, I had worked on mainly concept planning and design for interior fabrics and rugs for major companies, including SUMINOE Textile, the leading textile companyin Japan.
In 1998, I set up my own design studio Studio Ma” and have been taking interior design project mainly in residentialas well as product design.
I have been working in the interior design industry for over 20 years, gradually expanding design field from product to interior design. In product design, I have been keen on collaborating with Japanese traditional decorative arts and craft makers, which brought the opportunities of exhibiting my products in Milan Salone for last 2 years.
This April, I organized the exhibition called Tutumu at the gallery near Duomo Milan where Japanese paper products were promoted. In the social side, I have been involved with JID activities as a marketing committee. JID is IFI association. I was in charge of rganizing IFI reception party in Kobe this summer which was quite successful.
I would like to progress and expand my interior design business in Japan.
