Born in 1967. Founded ‘minä’ in 1995 prior to “minä perhonen.”
With a focus on textile design, based primarily on hand-drawn patterns, Minagawa engages in design activities that truly integrate into daily life, such as garment making, furniture and tableware designs, and spatial direction of stores and accommodations. Minagawa has provided designs for Kvadrat (Denmark), KLIPPAN (Sweden), and GINORI 1735 (Italian pottery label) and worked on illustrations for newspapers and magazines.
