Architect Akihisa Hirata will be showing one of his latest creations, Flame Frame, at the Taka Ishii Gallery through the end of the year.

Hirata first gained an international fan-base with his biomorphic “csh” chair, which he showed in last year’s Frieze Art Fair.

Once again taking his cue from naturally occurring elements, Hirata’s Flame Frame – made from pressed aluminum – emulates the autonomy of flames. The piece is quite beautiful on its own but when repeated numerous instances it can be used as a partition or even a chandelier-like lighting fixture.
