This cultural background has even more broadened her imagination for design, which based in simplicity and minimal. She also experiment with material its natural ability or explore their potential possibility.

Name: Sayoko Shibuya (Japanese)
Born in Nagoya, Japan.
Sayoko was educated in Architecture, Interior and furniture design both in England and Japan.
It was during her undergraduate studies in London, Sayoko broadened her design spectrum to incorporate furniture design whilst also developing spatial practice. At Master’s level (at Goldsmiths, University of London), she deepened her understanding of theory behind the designs. Recently Sayoko’s focus has centred on her experience of the differences and similarities between Japanese and British cultures. However the fundamental concept behind all of her designs is to portray an elegant simplicity, mirroring her Japanese minimalist influence.
