BCXSY is an Amsterdam-based interdisciplinary cooperative between designers Boaz Cohen (Israel, 1978) and Sayaka Yamamoto (Japan, 1984). Established in early 2007, BCXSY continues to carry out a wide range of projects, both in The Netherlands and abroad. Offering a balanced combination of two unique talents, the studio delivers one distinct narrative that is characterized by an emphasis on personal experience, human interaction and emotional awareness. The artful intertwining of the specific and boutique with the universal and commercial is the hallmark of the BCXSY design experience.
Over the past years, BCXSY has gained international notoriety and recognition for their dedication to socially responsive projects. Their award-winning work has been featured at some of the world’s most prestigious design events and continues to capture the attention of international galleries and museums, including the acquisition of the Join screens by the Victoria & Albert Museum, M+ and Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen, the In Between glassware by the Shanghai Glass Museum, and the commissioned work, New Perspectives, by the TextielMuseum in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
With an approach that is playfully deliberate, BCXSY never fails to surprise and inspire. By collaborating with a variety of craft workshops and commercial initiatives, BCXSY creates products that are infused with context and beauty.
The studio has also teamed up with world acclaimed partners such as H. Stern, Kvadrat, Laboratorio Morseletto, J. & L. Lobmeyr, Philips Lighting, Spazio Rossana Orlandi, Wallpaper* Magazine, Design Museum Holon, Domaine de Boisbuchet, Calico Wallpaper and many more.
