Yusuke Tazawa

Yusuke Tazawa’s philosophy is “simple design, quiet form”. He hopes to make wooden accessories that blend in to daily life, objects that are forgotten once used and become fully functional.

Being a woodworker with a background in furniture making, his inspiration is nature itself. Since a child he has always liked handicrafts, so as a student he specialised in Forest science and engineering. After working in conservation, he took the plunge to convey the importance of the woodland and nature through his woodworking skills. He now works out of his studio named Think! Forest in Ebina, Kanagawa Prefecture.

  • Yusuke Tazawa makes these wooden utensils at his studio Think! Forest in Ebina, Kanagawa Prefecture.
  • When designing these goods he looks to source inspiration from old culture and tools in Japan (such as the Japanese tea ceremony).
