Satomi Minoshima is a Japanese designer based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. She creates concepts based on her design research. Minoshima is inspired by materials, color, history and production processes which already exist within the content of the topics she is fascinated by. Her approach combines visual communication between the 2-dimensional graphic world and 3-dimensional material world to materialize products, such as art pieces, installations, illustrations, and books.
