A majority of her work is often called “minimal design” but Tomoko Mizu feels it more appropriate to call them “silent design”.
As an interior designer and interior coordinator, Mizu founded her own studio in Milan in 1994. Her design process is based on the understanding of materials, trying to get its utmost beauty on which to apply a natural form and poetry.
She has worked on numerous projects both with artisan and commercial companies that appreciate her gentle yet powerful approach to design.
She continues to spend her time crossing the divide between Italy and Japan developing working on collaborative projects including the beautiiul collection of suspended lamps for Bonacina 1889.Bonacina 1889
