YOKO KAWADA

Sydney based designer and hands on creator of the Square+Round Wash Basin.  
My works combine elements of handcraft and material technology, an approach which reflects
my cross-cultural experience and background   ”Unity of Opposites”  

Wabi & Sabi aesthetic, mathematical perfection, boldness and elegance, tradition and innovation,
streamlines and curves….. Square and Round.

I have studied interior design in London and explored the world extensively in the 90’s which gave me all the inspiration to put my works together.
Currently working in an art studio in inner west Sydney.

シドニーを基点に‘Square + Round’ シリーズのシンクの制作。

手作りと既製の技術の工程を取り入れた作品には彼女の異文化体験のなかで培われたパーソナリティーを表現しています。

剛健でかつエレガント、伝統でかつモダン、勅撰美と曲線美、侘び寂びであり計算されたバランス、四角と丸の組み合わせそれが ‘Square + Round’ です。

1990年代にロンドンでインテリアデザインを学び、またその間に世界の各地を訪問。

 ‘’旅をすることでストーリーが折り重なり、その各地で見られる物と伝統を組み込んだ、まるで話しかけてくるような、そしてそのストーリーを話したくなるようなオリジナルな作品をひとつひとつ作って行くこを目標としています。‘’

現在はシドニーのアートスタジオにて作品制作の活動中。
