Takeshi Sawada

Takeshi Sawada is the director and designer behind Tokyo-based furniture brand Kamina&C.

His experiences at the apparel industry brought him various aesthetic inspirations and after leaving an apparel company, he started to explore the realms of furniture design. His Animal Seats collection is a humorous and creative example of his versatility and talent. According to the artist, he aims to design objects that appeal to visual sensation.

"Objects are nothing more than objects. However, through contact, they can have the ability to bring a smile to our faces, heal and sometimes even make us cry- jolting our emotions and bringing about new sensations. When designing, it is the capacity of objects to evoke new feelings that I keep in mind."
