Ryo Akiyama 17 April 2015

Washi, the traditional paper technique in Japan, has recently been added to the UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage list.The idea of this collection is to pick up the value of paper in the past ages, as well as to celebrate this wonderful skill which is at risk of being forgot.

Ryo Akiyama Photographer

I am from Japan and I studied jewelry design at IED Milano. I am now attending the Master course of Arts in Design and Applied Arts at the Creative Academy in Milan, where I am learning a lot of things related to the luxury industry. After this course will be offered an internship in the Brands of the Richemont Group to the most deserving students. So now I am waiting to see what will happen in the future for me. I must admit that I have the same curiosity also for this coming Salone del Mobile, where I am expecting to see a lot of fresh, exciting and creative design. I am sure I will focus my visit on upcoming designers /brands and innovative materials.
