ABOUT



Kato believes in the ability of design to (re)shape our relationship with each other and the material world. With a keen interest in material contexts and the relationships between objects and people that she can shape as a designer, material and storytelling are at the heart of her work. Her approach to design is sensitive and contextual. In doing so, she focuses on design as a tool to reflect, question and discuss.



APPROACH

Research plays an important role in her work. With great dedication she immerses herself in a context and theme to understand it as well as possible. She combines this research with a conceptual but hands-on approach.









Kato is currently studying a Master Product Design at the Luca School of Arts, Genk
