Design Residency, Mika Tsutai, 2018.

We welcome our new DIR Guest, Mika Tsutai from Kyoto. The Product Design department invited Mika for spring 2019. Product Design ArtEZ and Kyoto Institute of Technology are buidling up a collaborative exchange and research and Mika Tsutai is the first guest to explore this collaboration. Mika Tsutai is a designer, lecturer and PhD student in the Design Department of Kyoto Institute of Technology (KIT). Mika has developed a range of different products using paper pulp based material in different iterations. The DIR residency would be to firstly explore new design iterations for this new brush-on material in a different cultural context and to work with students at ArtEZ in the use of both types.
