Donation of the Face shields

We have got an excellent face shield design format by e-mail from Øivind Slaatto, danish designer based in Copenhagen and organized the team EMERGENEERS with Gudmundur Ludvik and Jens Præstgård Møller. We had met in Kyoto during his travel in Japan. In order to respond their favor, we have used their drawing and hand cut 100 sets of the shield. The shields are donated to the Kyoto medical association. We appreciate EMERGENEERS’s generous contribution by offering their design format for free. We keep thinking what we can do and try to do our best.


Donation of the Masks

We have donated 50 masks for Kyoto Welfare Council. These are made by ourselves with our know-how to make prototypes of design products with textile. We keep thinking what we can do and try to do our best.


As you all are aware, people worldwide are facing difficult times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our thoughts are with you, especially our friends who have been heavily affected in Europe and the US.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to those who work to support our livelihood, including those in the medical field, who are still at risk of infection.

We will continue to monitor the situation every day and think about what we can do here at FUKUSADA STUDIO to improve the current situation and make a better day come sooner.

Everyone, please take good care of yourself. We look forward to seeing you again at exhibitions and events once things improve.

All the best,
Ryosuke Fukusada
