YOKOHAMA MAKERS VILLAGE
Yokohama Makers Village (Japan)
Metal is the common thread of the product design collections presented by Yokohama Makers Village. Brand open to experimentation, YMV offers an innovative collection, IKIMONO, in collaboration with the designer Hiroaki Nishimura, the architecture programmer Junichiro Horikawa and Stratasys, a leading company in 3D printing. After the era of mass production and consumption, followed by the waste disposal that is irreversibly compromising the ecosystem, YMV offers a repertoire of design objects inspired by a more sustainable lifestyle, in coexistence with nature, where 8 objects reproduce the “strength” and functions of the different natural elements thanks to parametric design.
