Manonik explores sustainable textiles in Brooklyn

Other | Wednesday 24th February 2016 | Cristina

Launched last year, Brooklyn based designer Yoshiyuki Minami is working on a collection called Manonik.

The works include unique textiles experiments, described as ‘objects’, made using traditional methods and processes. His background in economic sociology informs the project, which explores and aims for economic and cultural sustainability.

Minami hails from a small city called Niihama in Ehime, Japan. Minami has reported that his MO as a designer is influenced by the Japanese concept Wabi Sabi, which finds beauty in imperfections. This concept filters through the rough aesthetic of his work, which embraces mistakes.
