Renewing old knowledge


Jo Nagasaka founded his own Tokyo-based multi-disciplinary firm, Schemata Architects, in 1998. His projects span architecture, large-scale installations, interactive interior environments and furniture design. In his work, Nagasaka recontextualises well known industrial materials and adapts traditional craft techniques in an innovative and decidedly contemporary way. With Artek, Nagasaka has further developed his ColoRing surface treatment, based on two age-old Japanese craft techniques , to be applied to beloved Artek classics.
