Yuri Suzuki is a sound artist, experience designer and electronic musician who works at the intersection of installation, interaction and product design. He explores the realms of sound through exquisitely designed pieces that examine the relationship between people and their environments questioning how both music and sound evolve to create personal experiences.
After studying Industrial Design in Tokyo he worked for the Japanese electronic art unit Maywa Denki; exploring the relationship between music and technology. He then moved to London to study Product Design at the Royal College of Art under the tutelage of Ron Arad while also working with Yamaha to produce musical experiences.
In later years, he created the DIY musical instrument, the OTOTO (comprising of a built- in synthesiser and sampler) with Mark McKeague and Joseph Pleass, which was acquired with Colour Chasers in 2014 by the Museum of Modern Art New York for the permanent collection.
His practice has expanded into a wide range of collaborations with the likes of will.i.am and Jeff Mills to Google, Disney and the City of Hamamatsu in Japan. His work has also been displayed as both solo and group exhibitions at the Tate Britain London, Mudam Luxembourg and the Museum of Modern Art Tokyo.
As a Partner at Pentagram London in 2018, Suzuki and his team work internationally pushing the boundaries between art, design, technology and sound, crossing the fields of both low and high technology.
