Designing shape is to give form to values that people tacitly share and wish for. Naoto Fukasawa visually captures these values and he draws the exact outline of them. His ability for visualising such unseen outlines for things is not easily worded and described, nonetheless, people are convinced with his ability when they experience his design. In an interview that with Daniel von Bernstorff follows the lecture Fukasawa will engross his thoughts.
Fukasawaâ€™s notions and expressions to approach essential values of things through design travel beyond borders or domains and his thoughts are well respected internationally. His concept for finding hints in subconscious behaviour of people which he named â€śWithout Thoughtâ€ť, is most known and he runs â€śWithout Thoughtâ€ť workshops to share his thoughts.
Naoto Fukasawa (59) collaborates with world renown brands and acts as a consultant for major Japanese corporations in the field of design and corporate culture. He has received numerous national and international design awards. He acted as the chairman for the Good Design Award in Japan between 2010 and 2014. He is a professor at the Department of Integrated Design at Tama Art University, Tokyo. Currently he is acting as the chairman for the Japan Folk Craft Museum.
