sensitive visions for the contemporary culture of living
Macreation Image

Masayo Ave, a Japanese architect and designer, is evolving design from an in-depth study. Her more than a decade long experiments in the fields of architecture and design are not only based on knowledge and technology, but also based on touch and sensibility. She defines her mission to be 'an industrial artist' and discovers emotional qualities in materials by her artistic observation and manipulation. Hearing the "inner voice" whispered, she discovers the hidden natural beauty even in artificial materials, which are often considered only for their utilitarian properties, and reconciles its emotional qualities with the sophistication of technology and tradition. As the result, her projects come up with unexpected comforts and joyful discoveries, which present new vision for the contemporary culture of living.
