Academic, School of Crafts and Design

Rentaro Nishimura is a London-based multi-disciplinary designer.

After his initial training as an interior designer in Tokyo, Rentaro moved to London to study Architecture at the Architectural Association School of Architecture. His passion for design, construction and form led him to then complete an MA in product design.

His work draws on principles of origami, repeat modular forms, self-assembly and flat-pack designs. From lights to rings, chairs to wedding dresses, window installations to packaging.

Using the latest digital technology of 3D printers and laser-cutting, his work bridges the gap between craft and technology.
