Norihiko Terayama was born in Japan in 1977. He is well known in Japan as a product designer.
He grew up in a creative atmosphere, with his grandfather known as a restorer of Nikko Toshogu Shrine and his father still active as an architect. Influenced by his father, he studied architecture and then went to the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, where he majored in product design from Gijs Bakker, the founder of DROOG Design. He also did a one-year internship at the office of Richard Hutten, a member of DROOG Design, before returning to Japan. Tracing his career in this way, it becomes very clear that his current work is based on architecture and design.
Norihiko Terayama, armed with an abundance of ideas and meticulous, precise handwork, is certainly establishing his own world, and is perhaps the most notable artist of the moment.
