Geneto Architects, Kyoto and Tokyo

Posted: 14 Feb 2010. Updated: 03 Jun 2020

I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with furniture designer Asako Yamashita and architect Ko-ji Yamanaka at their studio in Kyoto, Japan.

The team are a very inspiring bunch. They work on projects for commercial, cultural, housing, office, restaurant and public spaces.

Geneto recently designed a custom installation for the Diesel Denim Gallery in Aoyama, Tokyo, which featured "lightening shaped frames" around the studio space.

They are inspired by the detail of materials, functionality and the environment around them, designing unique spaces which often take on elements of the clients personality.

Geneto have recently launched a new website - so make sure you pay them a visit.
