Representative Director & Designer
IALD Professional member The Illuminating Engineering-Institute of Japan The reason why I funded WORKTECHT is because I had been working at a project management department for hotel projects since the late 80s. There I had the chance to work with interior designers and lighting designers from different countries. At that time, Japanese lighting designers were only used for light-up or facade light. For the interior lighting, people only used foreign lighting designers. Therefore I thought there will be a market for Japanese lighting designers in the future. Now our company is not only receiving offers from Japan but also many job requests from other countries. We also have offices in Hong Kong and Tanzania at the moment.
Graduated from Taiwan, Shih Chien University, and Tokyo designer gakuin, major in industrial design.

Yoshihide Kurose majored in architect and he also has the membership of Associate member in IALD. "When I am doing lighting design, I always try to keep an objective approach. I do not think myself is only providing design for lighting. I think I am also providing architect designs, product designs and any other types of design that is related with space design. I am always willing to use 120% power to deal with all kinds of projects"

She joined WORKTECHT in 2005 and in 2012 did move to Tanzania to extend the WORKTECHT lighting design brand in Africa. Since 2008 she is an Associate member of IALD International Association of Lighting Designers. She thinks that "Shadows do shape the building and space. Lighting does shape the human mood and feelings, it unites and integrates all people around the world. When I design I think about how the space will feel and functionality. In Africa I do focus on energy saving sustainable lighting design solutions maintained by power of nature.''
