Studio Woodworkers Australia is delighted that Isao Takezawa has been accredited. Isao is a designer and wood craftsman with experience in Japan, The United States, Italy and Australia.
Isao says that his focus lies in exploring how a product or a space can enrich human experiences, looking for ways to touch human senses and elevate positive feelings. “I’ve found that this can happen through one’s conscious or subconscious recognition of happiness upon interacting with these products and spaces. Materiality, lines, mass, light and shadow, structure, softness and rigidity, and context; I believe all these elements have to work in harmony to serve its function. Ultimately my goal as a designer is to create things that get better with age; responsible and timeless objects and spaces that respond to the changing needs of the society.”
In 2017 he established Marker Furniture in Sydney. In 2018 he became a member of Studio Woodworkers Australia.
