Studio Minale-Maeda

Studio Minale-Maeda was founded by Design Academy Eindhoven master graduates Kuniko Maeda and Mario Minale in 2006 in Rotterdam.

Their work lies at the fault lines of the multiple, seemingly opposite realities of a globalized, post-industrial world, like local and global, craftsmanship and technology, one-off and mass production, appearance and substance, utilitarian and eclectic, real and virtual. Their approach towards their projects is characterized by extensive research, meticulous attention to detail and materials and the intercultural perspective granted by their background. Their work is featured in international publications, exhibitions, galleries and museum collections.
