As humans, we seek emotional nourishment as much as food and water.
We believe that emotions affect the way we interact with products, and interactions, in turn, also influence how we feel, which is often accompanied by thinking.
Through the reflection of feelings and thoughts, we get to know ourselves better, moreover, self-awareness is the key to a life of colors, happiness and purposes.
That’s why we want to create products that nourish people‘s emotions.
We’d like people to feel positive, comfortable, and being understood while interacting with Yino’s designs.
And that is our mission.

Her recent works focus on creating compelling interactive experiences to enhance the emotional connection between people and objects.
