Group ixi is design network created by Xavier Moulin and Izumi Kohama.  They are actives in France, Italy and  settled in Japan’s Okinawa Prefecture, while stayed in Japan they share and exchange new ideas with the foreign exchange artists and designers. ixi is shorten word stands for the personal individual times individual.  ixi believes that solidarity with other individuals and individuals to make more power than individual can make.

Most of the new design is to alternative to new things and transform into different form. This is one of the virtues of design, it is  obviously is important. In contrast, Xavier and yichumiui design does not cost to replace the existing order of things. Fill in the blanks rather than the current in a given situation or to make some modifications to suit your needs. The combination of one product into other product to creates a double meaningful works.
