Kairo Kusamoto

Professional in Art Design.

About Kairo Kusamoto

Currently a graduate student. My thought based on the importance of linguistically understanding the value the thing has and the value the person finds in things. but not like simple expressions such as cool, pretty, etc. I am thinking that there are important elements other than the value that can be formulated, quantified and dateable like monetary value and function. As a result, the sense of distance to objets and Things is shrinking and I think that it is possible to understand the other side of objects and Things.

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I think that design that emphasizes concepts and concepts, which is a stage prior to going to the market, is essential. I believe that it does not only affect the design world but has the possibility of expanding human values and gaze.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
At the postgraduate master's program, I was studying the value of design using semiotics and phenomenology. Currently we are studying the concept of time in the field of phenomenology in philosophy and the value of new design from concept of labor in anthropology.
What is "design" for you?
Not something physically but something or service enriching people by giving new perspectives and values.
When do you feel the most creative?
When we got new insight through research and research through books and literature.

Whether you could present an answer that appeals to people's values.
What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
Whether you could present an answer that appeals to people's values.
When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
Whether or not you are thinking about concepts from the cutting edge. Whether or not the concept is connected to the design.
From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
Enriching personal life more by stimulating human life and values.
How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
I believe that not only new designs using new technologies and new materials due to the evolution of technology but also designs that will be visible by criticizing new things for old things. I think that a lot of small markets and communities are born, not a big market.
How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
Even when you receive a theme, even when you create your own theme, we will first build a concept linguistically. Then I will create a diagram and think about design accordingly.
Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
I live in Japan. Because my country has few conceptual designs, it has a big influence on my design that conscious of the concept.
Can you talk a little about your design process?
Even when you receive a theme, even when you create your own theme, we will first build a concept linguistically. Then I will create a diagram and think about design accordingly.
What type of design work do you enjoy the most and why?
I enjoy the design of furniture, interior and architecture. Because i learned about them in art university.
What are your future plans? What is next for you?
Apart from the content of the design, I think that it is never backward calculated considering the future in the person living in the design. Continue fighting anyway.

What makes your day great as a designer, how do you motivate yourself?
Discover contradictions and problems in the world by acquiring knowledge through design, philosophy, anthropology etc through books. I once came to society and worked at a company, so I had such a consciousness and returned to college. I think that it is important to feel with your own skin.

No. I liked the creation, but I'm good at putting together opinions and concepts, so I wanted to be in such a gathering position.

I believe that not many communities are large, but a lot of small communities are created in accordance with their values.
Please tell us anything you wish your fans to know about you, your design and anything else?
I believe that new designs will be born not only by the development of technology, technology, and services but also by having different perspectives and concepts on what already exists and what they have . It can be said that such viewpoint creation itself is a creation. That's why I would like to present that point of view towards others through the implementation.
