architect Makoto Tanijiri of Hiroshima architects Suppose Design Office designed an exhibition environment based on clouds for Designtide Tokyo 2009 in Japan.
The installation, which was made out of cotton and polyester material, creates a cloud-like space that allows visitors to wander around freely, enjoying works by over 60 groups of exhibiting designers. The individual booths were all covered in a fluffy way.
The cotton and polyester material will now be reused, heated and compressed to form suitcase wheels.
Visitors entered a layered “cloud” tunnel and from there into the TIDE Lounge where materials made by INVISTA were shown.
INVISTA kindly supported the exhibition by providing the material necessary to make the “clouds”.
exhibition design was an antithesis of rigid and invited visitors to meander the site’s twisting routes, stumbling upon unexpected discoveries.
Designtide Tokyo 2009 took place 10 October to 3 November.
