KUMI ODA / DESIGN
Eindhoven, the Netherlands
I was born and grew up near Tokyo, Japan. After studying contemporary jewellery and gemmology, I worked in a jewellery company for several years. Then I moved to the Netherlands to broaden my creative experience and attend the Design Academy Eindhoven. I graduated from the Man and leisure department "experience design" in 2016.
My interest is to use design as a tool to present nature and culture in a different context and to invite people to have more interest in the themes. Also to showcase a “real” experience, versus the digital experience which is more common nowadays.
