MIKIYA KOBAYASHI

Designer / Director

 

Mikiya Kobayashi, born in Tokyo, in 1981, established his own studio in 2006.

 


Since his beginnings, Mikiya Kobayashi's creation process was focused on the perception of its designs, looking for uniqueness in minimal shapes. Thanks to his inclination for natural resources, wood has become one of the main  materials used for his projects over the years. Kobayashi has been always closely related to his cultural heritage, connecting the tradition with new concepts, manufacturing processes, and technologies. His process, always close to materials, and his challenging approach have led the studio to work within a large variety of projects, from industrial design products to furniture and interior. Running together a design studio and showroom/store, he has been able to get direct feedback from customers about the products, which helped him to keep on improving his design.
