Mikiya Kobayashi on Making Harmony with Space Through Furniture

Find out why playgrounds don't always need to be furnished with items designed for children.

Playgrounds don’t always need to be furnished with items designed for children. Mikiya Kobayashi held an exhibition, Playscape, in his Tokyo design shop to show that there’s an opportunity for furniture to interact with everyone and create a poetic landscape. The exhibition showcases various park-like furnitures such as a swing, seesaw, rocking chair, mountain and cradle.

Each piece is made from Japanese hardwood and covered with Kvadrat textiles in shades of black and white, orange and blue.

Mikiya Kobayashi was born in Tokyo in 1981 and graduated from Mushashino Art University in 2005. In 2006, after working at Field Four Design Office in Japan, he started his own studio, “Mikiya Kobayashi Design.” Kobayashi first opened his design store in 2006 and named it “Taiyou no Shita” but changed the name to “Increments” this Summer to commemorate the move. The Playscapes exhibition was held to mark the rebrand.

Koyabashi is a recognized name in the field. In 2017, he won the IF Product Design Award (Germany); in 2015, the Good Design Award (Japan), and in 2013, he was the winner of Elle Decor’s Japanese Design Talent.

In conjunction with the opening of Playscape, Design Milk caught up with Kobayashi to talk about Japanese furniture design.
