Your Experience:  

Nonotak studio is the collaboration between visual artist Noemi Schipfer and the architect / musician Takami Nakamoto. In early 2013, they started to work on light and sound installations, creating an ethereal, immersive and dreamlike environment meant to envelope the viewer, capitalizing on Takami Nakamoto's approach of space and sound, and Noemi Schipfer's experience in kinetic art; in a relatively short amount of time, the pair has become renowned for creating ethereal, immersive, and dreamlike sound and light environments meant to envelope viewers.
