Designer/architect/teacher Miki Iwasaki is a wise man. He is the owner of mi-workshop, an archtitecture and design studio in San Diego, California, and part of The Bakery, a design collective and collaborative creative space in San Diego. What I like about him is a personified combination of a hands-on man and a thoughtful, highly-creative character.
“His curiosity in making and building things eventually led him to pursue a career in architecture . […] Throughout his academic and early professional years, Miki remained dedicated to his own art projects and furniture design, working late nights and weekends to develop and test his latest ideas. Miki’s interests and skills constantly expand as he pushes himself to explore new materials and methods.” via mi-workshop.com
The following video is a design documentary about Miki Iwasaki and his ideas, attitude, and wisdom, directed by filmmaker Jeffrey Durkin. Iwasaki explains the connection between furniture, architecture and life (like the title says). He says so much truths about IKEA, idea-realization and much more. And all within nine minutes.
