Japanese-born and Brooklyn-based, Nao Tamura moved to New York and showed her first product design in 2010. Having grown up in a design family, Nao saw the significance between live-work relationships and connected that to her in-between approach to design and travel.
A designer in the most modern terms, Nao’s talents cross over cultures, languages, disciplines, concepts and styles with consistency of smart thinking always at the heart of her work. She is truly global in her insights and execution. As a product of Tokyo and New York City creative communities, her solutions are equally at ease in the world of 2D and 3D, with an uncanny ability to find that emotional connection with the industry, status-quo often insists upon. Her unique solutions are more than simply design and possess a rare balance of innovation and beauty.
