Tanseisha Hitodukuri Project

Person in Charge of the Project : Urara Yamashita

Narukawa Laboratory participated in Tanseisha’s training program for new employees to design a chair that can be effectively utilized in small rooms. Nonetheless, the design did not neglect the functional aspect of the chairs. It had stables legs and seating surface within its simple design. Instead of creating the chairs to be thin and flimsy, they were carved into a simple polygon for a stable and compact structure. Through precise and detailed calculation, the chairs are also designed so they can be stacked during storage.

Mausoleum of Media Art / Tsunagaru Blocks

Person in Charge of the Project : Ayano Matsuda

At an event held at Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media, on dates 7/21-10/28 of 2018, we created a blueprint for large art products and recreational productions. In the exhibition of ”Reincarnation of Media Art” a ”Mausoleum of Media Art” was created designed reflect the shape of the ancient imperial graves of Japan, with dimensions of 10 meters in perimeter and a height of 3.5 meters. Inside the grave are 10 famous artworks from the early ages. At an event called ”Korogaru Koen Park Commons”, a three dimensional curve surface was created, named as ”Tsunagaru Blocks”. The basic units of the blocks are consistent, however by connecting the blocks with a differing surface, they provide a variety of recreational environments.
