Inspired by computational design and the contours of the natural world, designer Ai Sato brings a unique perspective to jewelry design: that of an architect. We recall this memory right now, when many people have to work at home, and the outdoor environment is also becoming very important. “But since I am the one controlling the process and extracting the designs, it is not the work of the computer alone; my personality and uniqueness are also reflected in my designs.”, Ai Sato Brings the Wonder of Nature and the Eye of an Architect to Jewelry Design. “Most patterns in the natural world can be expressed using mathematical formulas, and I think my designs closely mirror what can be found in nature,” Sato says. The studio was selected out of an open call launched by the Russian Federation pavilion a few months ago.
Their proposal engages with different models of care towards architecture, people and ecosystems, by opening up the architecture towards the gardens and the lagoon.

A base model made of wax resin generated through stereolithography can be cast to metal, or she can print nylon-resin items that are ready to wear. Now is the moment where, through personal actions, community initiatives, multicultural collaborations, we may potentially find ways to address complex problems in order to find the right steps.
That is how I created my Malina Earrings.”, And just as her architectural designs were informed by nature, so are her jewelry designs. “They brought young people in fresh from graduate school based on their research into new concepts and techniques, even though they did not necessarily know where their concepts would lead them to. “When I use these computational design tools, I think the resulting objects are much more interesting than what I can come up with by myself,” Sato says. It’s a very bright space, filled with natural light, shades and wind.
KASA (Kovaleva and Sato Architects) has been selected out of an open call with over 100 submissions to set up their temporary office inside the Pavilion, where they will work on a reconstruction of the building during the Biennale.

She can then manipulate those results to create astonishing designs. These pursuits led the young graduate to join Zaha Hadid Architects in London, where she found rigor in the complex geometries that had been designed.

Sato studied architecture at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, where her free-flowing design language stood apart from the more orthodox designs of her peers. That might be quite unknown, because this transition happened so quickly, but at the same moment it is intriguing.”, Episode 02: KASA (Kovaleva and Sato Architects). A design proposal by Zaha Hadid Architects for the New National Stadium in Japan. For this project they collaborate with Maria Pshenichnikova (fashion designer), Haruka Shoji (Textile designer), Yoshihiro Fukhushima (structure designer), and Ksenija Voronina (preservation architect). On the scale of the working environment, some of our collaborators have switched to home-work and, of course, this has become a new way of working. She produced proposals for architectural competitions, refined project design sketches, and created digital models of design proposals using tools such as Autodesk Maya.

The organic shapes created by such processes are familiar yet distinct.

Sato studied architecture at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, where her free-flowing design language stood apart from the more orthodox designs of her peers.
Yet as much as her talents were growing, the projects she was involved in weren’t coming to fruition, thanks to events such as the financial crisis of 2008. The Helix Ring (silver) and Helix Ring Mini (pink gold) were the first designs Ai Sato developed into products.
The complex shapes and surprising lightness of the 3D-printed products add to their appeal.
