Shortlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022 emerging design studio of the year, We+ is a Tokyo based design studio founded in 2013.

The contemporary Japanese studio was founded by Toshiya Hayashi and Hokuto Ando. We+ gives form to new perspectives and values using methods based on research and experimentation.

The studio explores the possibilities of alternative design that establishes a close coexistence with the natural and social environment around us and incorporates a diversity of values that are often forgotten in today's society, where convenience and rationality are sought.

"We have been working on projects including Urban Origin, which examines the origins of today's overly complicated manufacturing process and reevaluates the waste produced by cities as vernacular materials," said We+.

This studio has been shortlisted in the emerging design studio of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
