Hiroko TAKAHASHI is a Japanese textile designer. Patterns consisting only of circles and straight lines are the hallmark of her design.Hiroko became well known when she started designing modern style Kimono. She now also created a wide range of accessories.
The geometric patterns that Hiroko conjures up are made with limited elements of circles and lines. While it is her endeavor to find great possibilities within minimal elements, at the same time it is a metaphor for how one can live a gratifying life without asking for much, how one can enjoy the simple life without being wasteful. The ‘circle’ we have grown accustomed to, is a design motif used throughout time, beyond borders and cultures. The potential of such a ‘circle’ is immeasurable.
