Rule and Creation

BY KOSUKE TSUMURA
@ DESIGNART 2017 OPENING EVENT PECHAKUCHA NIGHT TOKYO SPECIAL! OCTOBER 16 (MONDAY) AT OMOTESANDO HILLS! ON OCT 16, 2017

Fashion designer Kosuke Tsumura established the urban survival fashion brand “Final Home” which embodies the ideal that “the ultimate home is clothes”. Serving also as professor in the Department of Scenography, Display, and Fashion Design at Musashino Art University, his scholarly understanding of design, art and architecture sets him apart from most. We expect he'll be puzzling us with some of his most imaginative works, while inspiring us at the same time.

ファッションデザイナーとして斬新な世界を提案し続け、最近では大学教授としてもご活躍されている津村耕佑さんが登壇されます!
第52回装苑賞受賞後の1983年からは三宅デザイン事務所に所属し、主にパリコレクションに関わられました。1994年、常時はもとより非常時にも対応するウエアーFINAL HOMEを開発、最近では生命細胞から着想を得てデザインしたPUZZLE WAREというユニットを使ったワークショップや作品を展開発表されています!

Make the Way of Making

BY SATOSHI YOSHIIZUMI
@ DESIGNART 2017 OPENING EVENT PECHAKUCHA NIGHT TOKYO SPECIAL! OCTOBER 16 (MONDAY) AT OMOTESANDO HILLS! ON OCT 16, 2017

Designer and artist Satoshi Yoshiizumi takes a deeper look than most into the purity of common objects, this time focusing his unique perspective on the electrical appliance. He treats the electronic components of appliances themselves as his works' materials, imaginatively combining and reconfiguring them in resin without loss of conductivity, retaining their ability to operate as appliances. A purity and beauty seems to rise up out of this seeming distillation of objects and materials, begging the question: at what point do materials stop being materials and start becoming products?

TAKT PROJECTの吉泉聡さんは、ものづくりに対して信念を持って取り組まれています。つくり方とは、たった一つの作品ではなく、新しい価値観と視点を提案・展開させる事が出来る手法だと。既存の枠組みを問い直し、つくり方からつくるデザインについてプレゼンテーションしてくださいます。ミラノサローネなど、国際的なクリエイティブ市場でも注目を集めたTAKT PROJECTの世界について語ります!

Sensibility of the Grid

BY CLAESSON KOIVISTO RUNE
@ DESIGNART 2017 OPENING EVENT PECHAKUCHA NIGHT TOKYO SPECIAL! OCTOBER 16 (MONDAY) AT OMOTESANDO HILLS! ON OCT 16, 2017

The internationally acclaimed Swedish architectural partnership, Claesson Koivisto Rune bring their multi-disciplinary approach to Japan, this time to DESIGNART, debuting a new series of printed works that delve into the repetition, proportion, and artistic sensibility of the grid. Derived from the artists’ passion, discussions, research and experience of architecture after close to a quarter of a century in the profession, these works embody their synthesis of design and art, abstracting from skyscraper façades something other than architecture ...other than art ...in a search for the essence of the grid.

国際的に高い評価を得ているスウェーデンの建築家集団クラーソン・コイヴィスト・ルーネは、DESIGNARTでは多分野からアプローチを行い、グリッドの反復性、比例性、芸術的感性を掘り下げた新シリーズのプリントワークを発表します。 建築家の情熱や討論、研究そして経験から生まれたこの作品は、建築以外の超高層ファサードから抽出し抽象化したものを素材にしてデザインと芸術の統合を体現しています グリッドの本質を追求しています!

About the City's Organizers

  • Mark Dytham

    Little did we know that a one-off event in Tokyo, based on a simple format we came up with to stop architects from talking too much, would grow into a truly global celebration of creativity - if we did we may have named the event something a little easier to pronounce and spell!

  • Astrid Klein

    Astrid Klein was born in Italy to German parents, schooled in France, educated in Britain, and since 1988 has lived and worked in Japan. She is, therefore, thoroughly international, right down to her bones. Traversing disciplinary and cultural boundaries has been a way of life for Astrid. An artistic family background has ballasted her sense of identity, while the compass of design has guided her professional career. A Masters degree from the Royal College of Art in London exposed her to the diversity of creative endeavor and developed her talent. A thirst for the exotic led her to Japan, a hunger for the new kept her there. After working for Toyo Ito in Tokyo, she and her partner Mark Dytham established KDa in 1991. The work of KDa has been the subject of numerous publications and an exhibition of their work was held at the Architecture Association in London in 2005. Astrid is a frequent guest at international conferences on design and architecture and has lectured or held teaching positions at universities in Japan, the UK, the USA, Australia and throughout Europe.

  • Brian Scott Peterson

    Brian Scott Peterson is a one of those jack-of-all trades kind of characters who re-invents his entire world every few years. He's worn a load of different hats, from writer and photographer, to musician, to entrepreneur, to NPO founder. He's happily funnelling his imagination into PechaKucha at HQ in Tokyo. Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, he's travelled the world extensively. Since 2004, Brian, with his wife and two children, call Tokyo home.

  • Mariko Yokogi

    My background is studying architecture and I love multidisciplinary creative fields! Through experiencing many projects of space design, graphic design, publishing, coordinating, and so on, I have joined PechaKucha Global HQ. Really excited to meet awesome talents all over the world!
