Maki Yamamoto is both the founder and creative director of Maki Yamamoto, Inc. A graduate of the renowned Bunka Fashion College in her native Tokyo, Maki’s knowledge of couture and her passion for interior textiles and art led her to launch her own design company in 2003, shortly after relocating to New York.
Drawing inspiration from the textures and colors found in nature, Maki uses the dying and sewing techniques she honed as a designer of avant-garde clothing to create customized sculptures of fabric and light for her clients. Her intricate, exciting designs bring sublime style and luxury to interiors.
Maki is at her happiest when she is collaborating with other artists and creating something new. As such, Maki welcomes design projects that require custom solutions unique to your needs. From brainstorming concepts to design development and production, the collaboration process is always dynamic and engaging with Maki. And with her expertise and vision, she will make sure that the result will enhance your existing space through color, texture, and contrast: an object of art you helped to create.
Maki lives, works, and creates her fabric works of art in New York City.
