Tatsuya Akita was born in Osaka, Japan in 1987. He designs products which are honest in terms of the materials and processes employed and loves to investigate various scales of manufacture with a view to learning their limitations whilst exploiting them constructively. Material selection also plays a major role and each project brings with it new things to explore and research.
