Founded in 2015 and started as an artistic research project by a London-based Japanese artist Akiko Ban in collaboration with a graphic designer Taiyo Nagano, MYSTIC FORMS is an experimental jewellery brand inspired by the 'mystic forms' found while traveling around the world from ancient gods and goddess in Egypt, spiritual temples in Thailand, the Maya civilization in Mexico to the pop music and culture in Japan.
Exploring the boundary between fashion and art, the brand prides itself on creating wearable art pieces carefully handcrafted in London.
With recent collaborations with British Museum, Tate Modern, University Arts London and international stockists, MYSTIC FORMS continues to captivate audiences worldwide.

Akiko holds an MFA in Sculpture from Slade School of Fine Art and a BA in Drawing from Camberwell College of Arts (UAL). Her works have been exhibited internationally and her recent projects include the collaboration with Basement Jaxx and the Japanese animation Evangelion and a Tokyo fashion brand matohu. Her work ‘Sky Goddess’ was selected for RA summer show in 2016.

Taiyo is a graphic and digital media designer originally from Tokyo and he is an integral part of MYSTIC FORMS as a creative director. He is the founder of the east London design studio Tamassy Creative who recently worked on the graphics for BBC/Netflix drama Giri/Haji. He holds an MA in Digital Arts from Camberwell College of Arts (UAL).
