Late last year an exhibition was held at the Shibuya gallery ROCKET, featuring a collaboration between Rikako Nagashima, a young art director at ad agency Hakuhodo, and Hideto Hyoudou, an acrylic craftsman. “Mizukagami” (water mirror) garnered the attention of many in the design industry not only because of the participants’ credentials – the previous year Nagashima had won new designer of the year award – but also because of the curious, disturbing, hallucinatory nature of the work.
The two designers have now brought their work to the market with a series of drippy acrylic mirrors being available for purchase. Prices range between 31,500 yen and 50, 400 yen and can be purchased at Mitsubai Tokyo. You have to match up the prices with their corresponding number.
