Future Thinking Curation
Design for Diversity (Design for Everyone)
I believe design can be a powerful force addressing change. Through design we can create positive and uplifting experiences for everyone.
My strength is bridging business, management, research and design to create a cohesive, effective and efficient outcome in each project. I identify common threads across diverse disciplines, set goals and visualize viable and innovative solutions.
My experiences in Japan, the US, and Europe formed my unique sense of cultural insights, creativity and design. I work in a wide range of fields including research and design development, education and culture, and liaison work between the US, Western Europe, Brazil and Japan.
I was born in Osaka, Japan, and have been residing in New York City since 1979.

Since the early 1990’s Sachiko Uozumi has been redefining the purpose of design, bringing innovative and sustainable design solutions to market, addressing cultural diversity, and linking a wide range of audiences in local and global communities.
Her mission in design is to bring “Happiness, Creativity & Beauty” into sustainability while considering social needs – design that benefits our society.
In 1999, she started Uozumi Design Consulting in New York City, and established Uozumi Design LLC in 2010. From 1993 to 2003 she was a faculty member at Parsons The New School for Design, Product Design Department, in New York City.
Ten pieces of her design work are in the permanent collections in five museums throughout the United States and Europe including Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York City. She also writes articles for design magazines, and presents lectures and workshops in the US, Western Europe, Brazil and Japan.
