mist-o is an Italian/Japanese designers duo. Established in 2012 by Noa Ikeuchi (1983, JP) and Tommaso Nani (1983, IT), based in Tokyo and Milan.
The studio is a bridge across Europe and Asia and the work ranges from the design of furniture and small objects to spatial arrangements, from limited editions to industrial scale. Tommaso and Noa divide their lives between Japan and Italy working between the two countries to develop their own design language. Even if their background is very different they found a common ground in the research for a meaningful simplicity, combining a poetic approach with formal strictness and functionality. mist-o enjoys collaboration and believes that it enhances the understanding of the local culture in its broadest sense.
The studio has developed furniture, products and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field. Among their clients are Antolini, Cappellini, Frag, Ichendorf, Living Divani, Oluce, Tod’s and others.
In 2016 they received EDIDA Young Japanese talent award by Elle Decor Japan.
