This project was selected at the 4th Kanazawa World Craft Triennial, entitled “Transborder Crafts.”
The exhibition held at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, also included the award-winning work from the LOEWE FOUNDATION CRAFT PRIZE 2019.
The work incorporates some of the modern concepts used in the fields of architecture, engineering, and software into the craft, such as the expression of the HP shell as a structural continuum, the process of developing the line to the surface by making multiple layers of Kozo, one of the raw materials of Japanese paper, and the modularization and unitization of each part to give it the ability to expand.
The structure is expandable to fit the size of the venue, and we would like to develop it further as an impulse stand and as an object.
