Born in Fukuoka, Japan in 1977, Milan-based Keiji Takeuchi spent most of his youth in New Zealand where he graduated with a bachelor in product design. In 1999 during his study he also moved to Paris for his scholar study at ENSCI / Les Ateliers. In 2005 he entered Naoto Fukasawa Design ltd. After spending 7 years at his office in Tokyo, Takeuchi moved to Milan and set up Fukasawa’s European satellite office. In 2014, Takeuchi started freelancing in addition to working for Fukasawa. During the same year, Takeuchi was selected by Giulio Cappellini as one of upcoming designers and in 2015 Cappellini invited Takeuchi to work on an installation project for an Italian natural stone company: Antolini at KBIS Las Vegas and another project for Flaminia. In late 2015, Takeuchi naturally expanded his activities and he decided to set his own studio in Milan.

In 2019, Takeuchi was invited by Fiskars Village Art & Design Biennale and its design curator Jasper Morrison to participate his " Social seating" project amongst 18 designers of his choice. Today Takeuchi is collaborating with various internatinal brands such as Boffi, De Padova, Living Divani, Geiger / Hermanmiller, Ligne Roset, Cruso, Fredericia, Ichendorf, Jaxon Koen/Lixil, e'interiors and others. ...
