Issey Miyake & Reality Lab

Issey Miyake & Reality Lab

Japan, 1938

Miyake was born on April twenty-second, 1938 in Hiroshima, Japan. He studied graphic design at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, graduating in 1964. After graduation, he worked in Paris and New York City. Returning to Tokyo in 1970, he founded the Miyake Design Studio, a high-end producer of women's fashion.

Today, Miyake is working toward his next stages of creation. Along with Sachiko Yamamoto and Manabu Kikuchi, who have served for many years as production chiefs for Issey Miyake's collections, Miyake put together a select team of both experienced and young staff and established a new laboratory called Reality Lab. Reality Lab is already concurrently working on new designs that are intimately connected to society.

In 2010 the group presented the 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE collection, as well as the IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE lighting collection for Artemide in 2012 at Messe Frankfurt’s Light + Building and the Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano (the Milan Furniture Fair). The collections have each received great responses from throughout the globe.
