Potential wonder in trivial things is expanded by the minimum behavior. They give a form to the experience that a familiar thing feels like an un-familiar thing as a universal language with people worldwide. Vastness in the microworld and de tails in the macroworld. Complexity in simplicity and simplicity in complexity. The in-sect vision and the bird vision. For a moment and a century later. Going back and forth be-tween these two worlds, they are trying to increase the purity of what they create. They work on things that design has never done before, in areas and with people who have never had anything to do with design. They believe that design is to keep creating things that make people evoke the question, “Is this design?”

After graduating from the Interior Design Course of Musashino Art University and working at the design office nendo, she joined Hara Design Institute at Nippon Design Center in 2009. She founded Misawa Design Institute in 2014. Misawa Design Institute use an experimental approach, attempting to observe the principles behind things and visualize the unknown possibilities to be found there.Her major works include “waterscape,” which reconstructed the underwater environment into a new landscape; “Doshi,” which explored the possibilities of paper as never before; “WHO ARE WE,” a mobile exhibition kit for the National Museum of Nature and Science; art direction for “Entô,” a base where visitors can stay at the Oki UNESCO Geopark; and “UENO PLANET,” which visualized the hidden charm of the Ueno Zoo.
