Yuko Maki

Yuko Maki is an architect and a designer based in Stockholm. After she studied architecture in Japan and Finland she moved to Sweden and learned interior architecture and furniture design at Konstfack.


Her design is based on the context behind the projects in spite of the scale. The outline of the design appears spontaneously when she reads the context carefully and arranges all the information by studying.



HEX KEY is a key holder inspired by the ubiquitous hex key tool. By using wire bending technique, Yuko Maki added one more curve to the hex hey tool to invent a key holder. With this minimal transformation an everyday object gains a new function that reveals its original beauty.
