Yukiko Izumi

Freelance Designer and Japanese Teacher in Vejle Denmark

I am a designer from Japan.
My design principles are beauty, simplicity, and efficiency, with a little bit of playful humor to
bring a smile to someone’s face.
Also, I try to incorporate traditional techniques of crafts into my design work. I trust that good design can help to preserve, innovate and re-introduce the disappearing techniques in the future.

Japanese Wood Crafts

BY YUKIKO IZUMI
@ VOL 39 ON MAR 21, 2019

In a short story across the world, Yukiko Izumi tells us how she picked up a keen interest in the japanese wood craftsmanship called "kumiko".

The audience is taken through some beautiful examples and the culture surrounding the art, before finally discussing how to keep it all alive for the next generation.

In this evening's break period, people were even lucky enough to get to try it hands-on, as Yukiko had brought some lovely samples!
