Multi-disciplined Japanese designer Shin Azumi has always been a favourite of ours here at 3Rings. The talented Japanese designer started out working for national electronics conglomerate NEC before teaming up with former wife Tomoko Azumi, to create several notable designs. Shin went on move to London some 20 years ago, opening his own design practise called ‘a studio’, which produced famous designs for a variety of manufacturers including Nara for Fredericia Furniture and Lem for Lapalma. Recently, Azumi has been working with Case Furniture, a UK based manufacturer.
