My aim is to achieve ideal light distribution and seek glare-free illumination by perfectly understanding optical characteristics of the source. The process to verify effects of light is valued to provide beautiful and natural space with high-quality lighting. In addition to generating good-looking products based on the verification, I try to make people and things look just as they are and to create a pleasant atmosphere with scrupulous care for the intensity and color of light as well as the texture and shading on the surface to which light is delivered. This design process leads to, as my ultimate theme, production of functional but simple forms and creation of minimalistic beauty characterized by a Japanese heritage.
