Naoto Fukasawa was born in Yamanashi, Japan, in 1956, and graduated from Tama Art University in 1980. He began his career designing products in the field of micro-technology, before moving to the United States in 1989 to work within the Silicon Valley community. Returning to Japan to start IDEO's Tokyo office in 1996, he held workshops entitled, "without thought." The big idea was that simple designs that blend in with our lives without our conscious intent make our actions smooth and our environment peaceful. Working with Magis to create the Déjà-vu Chair and others in its series, he won the Interior Innovation Award (Best Item) at the IMM Cologne in 2007. He is engaged in his work with young designers and teaches at several institutions of higher learning in Japan.
About The Manufacturer
Magis is an Italian furniture company that puts a high emphasis on design and technological innovation. Its products often find themselves on the cutting edge of both design and structural composition - many times almost as a byproduct of the designer's standards of what is good and necessary in a useful chair or table. Magis seeks to create items that can be used in any room of the home (indoors or outdoors) and add beauty anywhere. Founded in 1976 and continuing to operate as a factory-free organization, Magis uses local contractors and outsources its manufacturing to create greater flexibility in the design process.
