“Measuring” in Tokyo: 21_21 Design Sight

Organized by 21_21 Design Sight and the Issey Miyake Foundation, the "Measuring: This much, That much, How much?" exhibition will start in Tokyo, on February 20, 2015. The idea was developed in November 2014, when the members of the Exhibition Team got together to explore all kinds of "Things you can do with 10 people." The results of these experiments are to be published on 21_21 DOCUMENTS.

Issey Miyake’s 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, Tokyo

Feeling back-to-school (or back-to the-office) blue? Likewise. But I'll be the friendly classmate and share this magical memory: lucky enough, while holidaying in Japan I've been invited to discover Issey Miyake's 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT foundation, located in Tokyo's trendy Midtown neighbourhood (and Design Hub). Adding to the dream, this building was designed by Tadao Ando, inspired by a piece of clothing. Feeling better already... Je n'avais pas plus que vous envie de rentrer. Mais, en bonne camarade de classe, je ramène un souvenir du Japon pour attaquer l'année : à Tokyo, j'ai eu la chance d'être invitée à découvrir le fameux 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT fondé par Issey Miyake. Situé dans le quartier de Midtown, réputé pour son Design Hub, ce centre de recherche et d'exposition sur le design a été conçu par Tadao Ando, qui s'est inspiré d'un vêtement pour définir les lignes de son oeuvre. Voilà qui devrait vous alléger l'humeur...
