Client / ISSEY MIYAKE INC.
For window displays of Issey Miyake Men / Aoyama and Kobe, Kosuke handcrafted huge sculptures out of rice glue, sawdust and jute.
The black winding sculptures were inspired by trails of orbital motions of the stars because the theme of the brand for new season was starry night in a desert.
Kosuke was feeling something was wrong with wasting a lot of materials for a temporary display like fast fashion, we decided to used only environmentally friendly materials to make.
This was a collaborative project with a Japanese architect Momoko Kudo.
