In Japan, limited land and resources have fostered creativity and shaped a rich culture valuing ingenuity and imagination. Satoshi Itasaka’s personal philosophies play a prominent role in his design output, which ranges from environmental commentary to inspiring the younger generation. Things like melting permafrost in Siberia, the disappearance of the Larsen Ice Shelf, acid rain’s impact on the Black Forest and radiation from Fukushima inspire contemporary takes on traditional Japanese traditional crafts and involve a deep-rooted sense of responsibility for our planet and its future. Colourfully illustrated as well are his playful yet sincere designs for children.
