My research is focused on thinking creatively to break away from stereotypes by regarding designing as one realm of design in a general sense. If you seek features and functionality alone, it is difficult to depart from stereotypes. In particular, in order to be creative in generating ideas that reflect social needs, the emancipation of ideas is an important factor. I also conduct applied research on methods for joining components, with a particular focus on joints for furniture. At the graduate school, students are required not only to seek a design philosophy but also to propose specific design methodologies, which will be verified through joint research with business, industry, and government.
