Japanese-born Teruhiro Yanagihara crosses boundaries and cultures to form encounters between contemporary design and Japanese crafts. His output spans several fields: product design, textile design, interior design, brand creative direction, and art direction.
In 2002, after finishing his studies in furniture design at Osaka University of Arts in Osaka, Japan, he established his eponymous studio, Teruhiro Yanagihara Studio, which today has a presence in Japan, Denmark, The Netherlands, and France.
His work features in the permanent collection at the Centre National Des Arts Plastiques in Paris and Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum. Furthermore, he was a jury member of the Good Design Award Japan 2020 and the Kokuyo Design Award in 2021.
