He also designs and produces three-dimensional objects based on the same principle. Major works include emblems for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, a glass pattern for the Dainagoya Building’s lower level, the Tokolo Pattern Magnet, etc. In addition, he has been a part-time lecturer at the University of Tokyo’s Faculty of Engineering since 2016, and at the University of Tokyo’s College of Liberal Arts since 2018
