中島 キャサリン 美友紀(ナカジマ キャサリン ミユキ)

2017 - present   LOS ANGELES      2012 - 2017   TOKYO      2011   COPENHAGEN      2008 - 2012   BOSTON      born - 2008   LOS ANGELES

 

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I spent summers visiting relatives in Japan, and the differences in American and Japanese lifestyles and conveniences that I observed through behavior and physical space stimulated my interest in design.  To expand my scope, I studied Danish design in Copenhagen in 2011, focusing on "human scale" in interior design, product design, urban planning, and community development. My degree in "International Literary & Visual Studies" at Tufts University allowed me to explore the U.S., Japan, and Denmark through the frame of design and cultural studies and to complete a thesis on "timelessness" in Japanese and Danish design. 

 

My long-term goal is to promote and contribute to a responsible society in which everyday urban living is enjoyable, human-scale, and sustainable, and to contribute to new structures and ideas of design and service in our increasingly global and technological world.
