Kensaku Oshiro

Rising Talents - January 2018

KENSAKU OSHIRO NOMINATED BY PIERO LISSONI

Originally from Okinawa, Japan, Kensaku Oshiro (1977) graduated from the Scuola Politecnica di Milano in 1999 with a Master’s degree in industrial design. He then went on to collaborate with various design studios, including Lissoni Associati in Milan (2004-2012) and Barber & Osgerby in London (2012-2015). After returning to Milan, he opened his own studio and started working with such brands as Boffi, De Padova, Gan, Glas Italia, Kristalia, Ligne Roset, Poltrona Frau, Viccarbe and Zanotta. His projects have earned him several international accolades: First place for Design Report Award at the 2016 Milan Salone Satellite, EDIDA – Young Design Talent Japan in 2016, etc.

For architect and designer Piero Lissoni, who has worked with him for eight years, Kensaku Oshiro’s work bridges:

“the gap between the Japanese and Western perspectives on simplicity/complexity.”

For MAISON&OBJET, Kensaku Oshiro will be presenting some of his most meaningful pieces, inspired by notions he has repeatedly investigated. To him, this exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to make new contacts with people from all over the world.
