Exploring the concepts of ‘air’ and ‘water’ inspired the use of acrylic for lighting design.
This series of lights shows bubbles throughout the lower surface structure to channel a soothing and calm subaquatic effect.
Acrylic is a flexible medium, allowing for further exploration and variation within this theme, which focuses on two of the four elements. This series is based on a ‘paper-like’ sheet of acrylic, however various shapes may expand this series.
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.
