Mist‑o is an Italian / Japanese design studio. Established in 2012 by Noa Ikeuchi, Japanese, and Tommaso Nani, from Italy. The studio is based in Tokyo and Milan. The two met while they were attending the European Institute of Design and started working together on various projects, some of which were soon exhibited at Salone Satellite, Triennale Design Museum, and the MOMA design store.
In 2010 they established together their own office named Mist‑o, based in Milan and Tokyo, working in different fields, ranging from Interior design to art direction and graphic. Tommaso and Noa divide their lives between Japan and Italy working between the two countries. Even if their background is very different, they found a common ground in the constant research to simplify the expression, combining a spontaneous approach with a rigorous and logic methodology.
The studio collaborates with design brand such as Antolini, Atipico, Cappellini, Ex‑t, Frag, Ichendorf, Living Divani, L’Abitare, Mogg, Oluce.
