Having studied Product Design and Sustainable Future in University for Creative Arts and pursued his professional career working with designers such as Ross Lovegrove in London, Satoshi believes that the intrinsic value of a product should not be based around its sustainable credentials but it should base around the user interaction and perception. The most important process of design is not the design of the physical features, however, unfortunately this fundamental process has been emerged as a primary concern in few times which is particularly user’s mind especially in Japan.

Lim: Lighting Collection
Series of light concept, named ‘LIM’ is a designed solution encompassing our
criteria of a sustainable product. To reduce the amount of components light housing for example is made from pure acrylic manufactured by craftsmen using state of. Taking inspiration from the imageries of ‘natural light’ seen through everyday life and selecting the latest OLED technology this gives it a natural factor without having any negative impact on the environment through its lifecycle.
2) OTTO: Smart Power Strip
Otto is a smart power strip, allowing the user to turn separate sockets on and off
and also a dimming function for lighting. The user can control it from a tablet
computer or PC. The design gives a clean look to a normally messy household product by hiding the sockets and cables inside the unit. The Organic form evokes feelings of a seamless function and incorporation into its environment.
3) Coffee Table:
The visual language of the design are centered around the fact that every object created
passes though the hands, minds and hearts of the users. So communication the individual
value of each object to the user through design is an important part of visual process. We
aim to design objects that will be a catalyst for driving positive cultural change, inspiring society to move towards a more sustainable basis for living.
Satoshi was born in Tokyo (1978). As an independent product designer and a sustainable design practitioner, he has received numerous awards and participated actively in events inside and outside of Japan obtaining a wide range of knowledge in different fields. He wishes to continue on with his development work of product design, but he focuses equally on the design activities based on contexts and plans to transmit this knowledge with concrete examples using exhibitions as such in Milan, in hopes to show the solutions to environmental problems through design.
