STUDIO BYCOLOR was established by Kaori Akiyama in Tokyo, Japan in 2013. The brand is dedicated to exploring the meanings and effects that colors have on people, and is known to employ a wide range of colors in its product, interior, and graphic design.
With the ever-increasing rise of synthetic materials around the globe, Akiyama applied new techniques to the classic material of wood in her approach to jewelry design. Akiyama wanted to express that wood is living material that comes from living trees. She made surface processing expressing the life of the tree, which she refers to as MM:WW or, More Works : With Wood.
By removing the adhesive element from the main structure that makes up the tree and exposing the canal, STUDIO BYCOLOR made it an accessory that makes us feel close to the tree breathing.
