In 2011, Kuwahata was awarded a grant from Danmarks Nationalbank’s Anniversary Foundation and from Grosserer L.F Foghts Fond, in connection with her participation in the exhibition Women Work in Wood.

Akiko Kuwahata designs and produces high-quality utilitarian objects in wood and aims to promote the many facets of wood and the use of well-made wooden products in our everyday lives. Kuwahata works mainly in wood, and when she is creating something new and striving to find the right shape, she always seeks to explore the full potentials of the material. To do this she engages hands-on with the wood. She seeks to make all her products irresistible and pleasant to touch. She finds inspiration in old Japanese crafts and Scandinavian design.
