C.H.O.design
I was born in Aichi Prefecture in 1966. After graduating from the Kanazawa Fine-Arts University and worked at the INAX Inc. and the DfCODE Inc., I established the C.H.O. Design in 1998. Now I have mainly designed about the products such as furniture, housing equipment apparatus, medical instrument, and household electric appliances etc. I am a member of the design platform, "POLY-SITE."

It is said that there is no nature in a city. Of course, there is neither a rice field nor a frog nor a char nor a cow. However, there are rains, wind is blown, and clouds flow too. And continuously the morning sun goes up and the sunset sinks every day. Such rains, wind, and the sun are natural parts. We are living without such a consciousness as if we forgot about it. In order to feel nature, going to a scenic place is not all. I think that having a feeling of consciousness is most important thing in our life. After designing the solar plant, I often look at the sky recently. The sun always exists on us. So, letfs look up at the sky sometimes, everybody!
