Waka Waka Collection by Shin Okuda
Hitoshi Arato
Dec 6, 2019

Waka Waka is a Los Angeles based studio focusing on wood furniture and functional objects designed and handcrafted by Shin Okuda.

His work ranges from seating concepts, utilitarian objects and space design, all of which demonstrate a simplicity in form, subtle detailing and a unique interpretation of proportion.

Wood is often the chosen material, specifically Baltic birch plywood, for its generic utilitarian application and its superior quality for furniture making.

“I waka waka waka –I go many places," which is the spirit of the studio. Look forward, look up, look out. Shin Okuda was born in Fukuoka, Japan and now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
