Multidisciplinary digital artist / Life Activist
Born in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. She attended to an international elementary school school and went to England for college. Since her youth, she was raised in an international environment with people of many different races and nationalities. She has adopted Eastern philosophy and focuses on humanity. She tries to see what is underneath of what seems to be happening on the surface of things, and pursues the depth and profundity of substances. The practice is confronting herself deeply which is like a training. Her challenge is to get rid of the global barriers and to take social approaches.
Rolf Benz was founded in 1964 by Mr. Rolf Benz in Nergolt, South Germany. The company drew attention by introducing the world’s first corner sofa, and since then it has been one of Germany’s leading luxury furniture brands that offers timeless design, the highest comfortability, and the highest quality suited through out time.
ROLF BENZ TOKYO is the world’s first officially certified Rolf Benz flagship store based on the “Global Flagship Shop Design” that Rolf Benz introduced to the world market in order to make a further leap forward as a lifestyle brand.

Announcing the latest work from ROLF BENZ for the first time in Japan
ROLF BENZ pioneered the furniture industry for 55 years by not only creating new trends, but also created many iconic pieces of furniture. The RolfBenz “594” designed by Sebastian Herkner is certainly one of these pieces. The curved upholstery of the armchair requires a high degree of precision and craftsmanship. The back shell is designed to surround the person, allowing one to sit comfortably and lean against the left or right corner. The seat is well cushioned, intentionally creased, and the piping quality prove the great quality of this armchair in detail. Other new products such as side tables and sideboards will also be introduced.
