Kensaku Oshiro

Kensaku Oshiro possesses a reverence for nature, born from his upbringing in the Japanese Island of Okinawa, as well as a refined sense for the human condition, honed through his urban experiences in Osaka, London, and presently, Milan. Oshiro’s work history is adorned with the likes of Piero Lissoni and Barber/Osgerby - and a sampling of his past collaborators includes Boffi, De Padova, Kristalia, Ligne Roset, Poltrona Frau, Viccarbe, Zanotta, and Muji. Most notable however is Oshiro’s approach to design, which he describes as “a way of thinking” rather than traditional problem-solving. This perspective has lead Oshiro to pursuits such as capturing the idea of sharpness, inspired by the quality of light he observed during a visit to Seattle, or the notion of discovery, embodied in the underside detailing of Kino and visible only from a low seated angle.
