“ Keiji Takeuchi does not call himself a minimalist.
Rather, he sees simplicity as an instrument
to pursue refinement ”

Takeuchi believes that among all design objects, furnishings are better than others to influence people's perception of their lives. For him, the role of the furniture designer is to help us adapt our lifestyle to the rapidly changing society in which we find ourselves. "It's about sharing a vision that can improve our lifestyle, a small or a big thing, beyond what is established by the market," he said.
