Shin Okuda is primarily a woodworker, with a background as an art fabricator. In 2009, he created WAKA WAKA as a studio focusing on hand crafted wood and metal furniture. His work ranges from seating concepts, table collections, custom furniture and space design. Specifically, Okuda produces objects, like "Double Cylinder Rocker," that balance design rigor and charm in equal measure. Okuda balances one-off commissions with more serially oriented production, realizing the ideal of the designer-craftsman that was once at the heart of the studio movement, while also producing objects perfectly calibrated to the tastes of the present.
