Five + One
5+1 is the architecture and design studio of Kosuke Osawa. Kosuke has a keen interest in simple, intuitive design and takes many ques from form and functionality in nature. The name itself represents the “5” elements + the “1” human experience. The studio is based in Mexico City and has worked on a number of commercial and residential projects. Kosuke’s work spans across mediums, his unique furniture and lighting design has you thinking “of course!” as if the piece had always should have been designed that way. killdoubt™ worked with 5+1 to create an identity kit, print collateral and website that reflected the studio’s understated approach. The logo itself plays with the simple math represented in the name and also pulls from Kosuke’s Japanese heritage.
