Tokyo Design Week 2016 …


It should have been a great memory of a full day spent in a creative atmospehere and indeed,

it was a sunny day. For the first time  the food distribution was successful on several aspects. They use a Hokkaido circuit stands chain, and the quality was there. I had even a japanes wine, not so bad.

The exhibition of architecture models was crowded, plenty of interesting unknown architecture studios and not only the famous ones.

Many big brands sport their stands, such Docomo, Sekisui House, Autodesk, Sony,  Panasonic and even…Ikea!!! Why Ikea had the need to be there is really astonishing…anyway it is a sign of a success of the whole event.

 

dsc01318Even the interior, as you can see from the shot above was extraordinary well conceived. A large cafe area where anybody could sit and relax was not there last year.

It was under the usual level the external exposition. One year  I recall many simple containers, this time there were few because the main meadow was on the purport of art installation, all of whom, were inside inflated giant ballons, more than two meteres tall. The downside is that those  art works looked almost the same since the “frame” was overwhelming the content.

The student making of game children was satisfactory as usual, with some lacking of originality.

Unfortunately on Sunday evening a new on Japanese Television transformed all above in an irrilevant event. It is so  sad that I would write about it only after some relfections.
