Satoshi Itasaka is the pres­i­dent and head de­signer of h220430, a product la­bel of De­sign Labo Inc. Like Iain Howlett, you can ex­pect far from or­di­nary de­signs in his port­fo­lio. The ar­chi­tects’ de­signs fo­cus solely on light­ing and fur­ni­ture, and sends mes­sages across to users to re­think and act upon so­cial is­sues. Satoshi skill­fully de­signed an Owl Chair to en­rich chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, and a Bal­loon chair to en­cour­age up­lift­ing thoughts when you’re feel­ing down. The lat­ter was in­spired by a French movie, “Le Bal­lon Rouge” (1953). What is life? The Birth chan­de­lier poses this ques­tion. Its de­sign was in­spired by the faint light that em­anates from the ovum at the pre­cise mo­ment of fer­til­i­sa­tion. Satoshi in­tends for ob­servers to re­think the sig­nif­i­cance of life.
