She graduated from California College of Arts in 2006 with a degree in interior design and has always been interested in the ephemeral aspect of light and shadow and how they can change the atmosphere of interior spaces.
Currently, she works for the integrated design studio Tapié in Osaka and mostly works on interior design projects with developers. The studio also has a gallery with about 100 artists where she curates.
Within the framework of a cooperation agreement between Osaka and Paris, Aki benefits from a residence at the Ateliers de Paris. She uses this time and these skills to set up an exhibition of Japanese artists in Paris. The objective of this project is to include artistic creations in the design of space but also to introduce Japanese designers to a foreign market. She hopes to develop this concept in other countries in the future.
