Hello I am Shiori Naruse, an artist designer, driven by curiosity and ambition and an admirer of all patterns. Founder of the Naruse Design studio, an energetic, experimental and bold design label that has the vision to create an ambience of nature inside the home. All of the products are unique creations designed by myself.
My work utilises both traditional and modern techniques, bringing together something truly unique. A story lies behind every design I create, my style is driven by a love of being outdoors in and around Japan, and the historic countryside of Northumberland.
My mission is to create a sense of nostalgia and to evoke a feeling of serenity, calmness and to provoke joy. My aim is simple: I want to bring nature into your residential or commercial space with my collection of beautiful designs!
Life is full of pattern and I aim to help you slow down and notice the beautiful colours and patterns that nature provides us.
My ethos is ‘less mass consumption, more unique creation’, I cherish my origins as well as the environment. I am proud to use personally sourced British and Japanese materials in all my work. All my products are ethically sourced and manufactured in the UK. For more information see My Values.
My work has been featured at Adobe/ITMA Barcelona 2019 and Adobe MAX LA 2019, winning best stand GOLD award.
