Born in Tokyo in 1981, Mikiya Kobayashi represents the new wave of designers in Japan. Working with national and international companies, he is not focused on the way we use the object but on the sensitivity in the perception of its designs. He is always looking for a singularity in his minimalist shaping. His line is subjective because always sensitive. He quickly answered some of my questions in between meetings, after our collaboration together with Takumi Kohgei.
