Fifty years from now: Noriyuki Ebina

Noriyuki Ebina (1958- ) is a Japanese designer specializing in high-end furniture. He graduated from the Tokai University department of design in 1982. He then started his design career with Kenmochi Design Institure.

In 1987 he moved to Hokkaido and to work on the design staff of a furniture company, opening his own studio in 1992 to provide design services for many of Japan's leading furniture producers.

He won the Gold Prize at the Hokkaido Northern Industrial Design Competition in 2003 and the Silver Leaf Prize at the International Furniture Design Competition in Ashikawa in 2002.

His designs have been called "where Japan meets Denmark," and his work will undoubtedly be valued fifty years from now.
