Yuri Himuro studied textile design in Japan and Finland. She creates pieces that search for surprise and interaction between textiles and people. The Satoyama Snip-Snap Series shown at SaloneSatellite 2017 let visitors snip and snap the textile using a pair of scissors to customize the design, as an ongoing process that would change along the day. Here cutting becomes a process of creation, instead of destruction. The Hide&Seek collection features playful jacquard textiles with contrasting images on each side, made possible by manipulating the woven mechanism. The pieces are made in wool and polyester, in collaboration with YOUBI, a woodworking workshop in the  mountain village of Nishiawakura-Okayama, in Japan.
