Materials as Metaphor Part III
Yamamoto presents a collection of textile surfaces in a variety of materials, including ‘Dukk’, a tablecloth woven from linen and silk, and ‘Tokyo’, a beautifully patterned woollen blanket, alongside a series of bedcovers and throws.
Raised in Brazil, trained in the UK and Norway and now based in Bergen, artist, weaver and textile designer Kiyoshi Yamamoto brings a rich mix of cultural influences to his work, combining the Japanese tradition of fine craftsmanship with the Brazilian love of colour. Since completing his master’s at the Bergen Academy of Art and Design in 2013, Yamamoto has exhibited internationally, participating in Design Weeks in London, Helsinki and Milan, and his work has been acquired for the collections of several public museums in Norway. Yamamoto is a frequent collaborator with other Norwegian design studios, including Morten & Jonas and Vera & Kyte.
