Inspired forms

Rina Ono launched her design studio aptly named Rinao Design, in 2007. After working for a period at an architecture firm, Rina transitioned to product design in pursuance of a greater connection to the daily lives of her end users. Her organic approach to design opens many avenues of inspiration, learning as much from her collaborators and users as she does from her chosen materials.
