To generate delicate products like jewelry, her taste of minimalism in industrial and modern aspects and inspiration of everyday objects abstractly harmonize with each other. Akiko’s fascination is ​the beauty of everyday little objects​ left unnoticed. beroep|tech‘ s designs are derived from the ​inspirational ideas of everyday life observation​. She proposes through her designs ​the value in everyday life​ and transforming monotonous items into tiny, wearable sculptures. Also, ​contemporary architectures, forms of geometry, as well as visual art​ are hugely involved in Akiko’s stream of inspirations. Craftsmanship is not a priority to fully express her concept.

The perspective of industrialization and minimalism gives the jewelry the sophistication of its natural and raw appearance. Because beroep|tech is for everyone, it is proud to be gender-neutral​. Additionally, the everyday in terms of beroep|tech is ​the timelessness​. Akiko’s designs are not necessarily following the trend. Consciously speaking, all material is sourced in New York. Furthermore, it is made of 100% sterling silver, gold/rose gold fill in order to prevent unwanted skin irritation. Gold-filled and rose gold-filled pieces are used for special designs that require a proper softness to ensure original shapes​.
