~Light-Emotion~


This lighting combines emotion, aesthetics and Eco materials to be profoundly felt in an emotional sense.

One of the main elements is its form of the structure. The wood frame is inspired by the geodesic domes which consist of 180triangles. According to the survey, I found people showing more of a tendency toward round shapes as their happy feeling and sharp shapes as their sad feeling. Therefore, I choose the geodesic form as the lighting shape to express our emotion.

The soft LED light bulb makes it possible to avoid the cardinal sin of lighting design, which is glare. Using Eco friendly materials such as wood for the frame and low energy LEDs, this lighting is sustainable and benign for not only people but also our environment.

FEAST "Feeling Delicious, Looking Delectable"



This project requested me to design wearable objects or accessories that celebrate the occasion of the feast and the identity of the host or the guests. I decided to choose HANAMI(花見)as my feast. Hanami is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the beauty Cherry blossoms or Ume blossoms whilst eating, drinking and singing. The shape of the necklace is inspired by the MASU(Wooden box cup) which is largely used for drinking Sake.


The white necklace is made out of the paper straws to express the delicate and lightness of the Sakura petal. And the black one is made out of coppers to represent the solidity and heaviness of branches. Therefore, you can swap the necklaces depending on your feeling!
