Eugenie Kawabata

Eugenie Kawabata is an independent, Melbourne based designer and maker of objects, furniture and functional art.

Eugenie draws inspiration from the transformative power of design and how it can shape and enhance our interactions with the physical world. Her approach to design centres on the tactile experience of crafting objects, emphasizing the design process as a hands-on endeavour.

Eugenie’s practice is at the intersection of art and design, with an emphasis and a strong commitment to sustainability. Her design works are primarily one-of-a-kind pieces and limited editions.
