Mentsen

Mentsen is an interdisciplinary design practice, founded in 2011 by product designer Yasuyuki Sakurai and communication designer Risa Sano.


The studio derives its name from the Japanese word meaning "lines and surfaces".


The studio has worked for a wide range of clients and projects in the fields of visual communication and art direction as well as exhibition, furniture and product design.


Since 2012 Mentsen has worked closely with Italian manufacturers Zilio A&C, designing furniture for them as well as art directing the company's communications, synchronising the quality and approach of the products and its communication output.
