About Kenjiro Yamakawa

Kenjiro Yamakawa is a designer/fabricator whose interests range from small product design to interior design.  His work displays a deep understanding of the process of product design and a rare ability to translate that understanding into radiant new works. Kenjiro’s solid hands-on experience and knowledge with materials brings innovative design ideas to his own pieces that cannot be achieved through merely on-paper/on-computer design methods.


About Loren Kulesus

Loren Kulesus is a designer based in Brooklyn, NY. Over the past 10 years he has worked in advertising, automotive, branding, personal electronics, furniture, interactive, and product design.  He is interested in new design paradigms and manufacturing techniques, such as CNC machining and lasercutting.


About DesignKLYK

DesignKLYK has experience in architectural, automotive, branding, electronics, furniture, and product design, and is therefore capable of a wide variety of output.  Kenjiro has extensive experience with a solid hands-on approach to design and manufacturing while Loren uses a digital process and outputs via CNC machines; the two different approaches compose a well-rounded design collective.
