SOHMA FURUTATE  /  古 舘  壮 真

He has operated in Tokyo with an independent approach to design and creation based on proper attention to materials.
While taking care to respect the innate quality of his materials, he effectively melds human ingenuity, material quality, and the use of space to search for the possible value in creating effective expressions through molding, in the process finding new functions and stories to tell.

1995年愛知県春日井市生まれ。東京を拠点に活動。

空間内に存在するあらゆる関係性に着目し、独自のアプローチでデザイン・制作を行う。素材そのものの鮮度を大切にしながらも、人・モノ・空間への効果的な造形表現を重視し、素材がもたらす新しい機能や価値観、ストーリーを生み出す可能性を探る。

発表の場は国内外を問わず、多数のライブラリーに作品が収容されている。designboom、日経デザイン誌他、掲載。 NHKworld、日本テレビ他、出演。
