Shin Okuda is a L.A based furniture designer. Okuda sites L.A as his main source of inspiration for his work, I see an obvious influence from modern Japan(Okuda’s home country). For me it’s not two places I would even compare however, the work of a Japanese man Inspired by his new surroundings in L.A has fast become a favorite of mine. His work is subtle, calm and inspiring. The simplicity in his design means that the little details stand on a main stage without being too loud and too busy, I’m in awe of his craftsmanship.
Okuda is part of the iKo iKo Gallery which is worth checking out too!
