PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE
concept : unbalanced balance
411 sticks connecting the two spaces
Their colors and shadows float and overlap,
creating a new space
with a new appearance.
Like flown away into space and floating there,
the sticks spread all around the space.
As if time stands still,
"a balance out of balance" is created.
The concept of sticks was inspired by a European children's game "MIKADO", which was often played before. The sticks randomly positioned as inspired by MIKADO create tensions and chance balances, which were designed to become tangible forms. It was designed to be structurally balanced in spite of its unbalanced appearance.
