Aya has a deep appreciation for compelling spaces. She loves being in an environment that evokes a sense of intrigue. Growing up in the Kansai region of Japan, Aya’s perspective was shaped from an early age by the backdrop surrounding her hometown; set against a vast natural landscape, surrounded by lush mountains, where seasons, traditions and mythical stories triggered her sense of imagination. 

These influences persist in her work as a spatial designer. Aya believes successful design is not merely a product of calculated placement of beautiful furniture, but one that engages us and thereby connects us with our surrounding and environment.  Aya creates beautiful and functional spaces that shape your experience, trigger a sense of nostalgia, and kindle a desire to return.
