Colourful Architectures in Aoyama

The work of Emmanuelle Moureaux is exhibited till the end of September at Prismic gallery in Aoyama. This French Architect full of resources is not new to the Japanese landscape. In early 2011, she created Sugamo Shinkin Bank, which was quickly (and understandably) dubbed “rainbow bank.”

Later that year she presented her work at DesignTide Tokyo. And in early 2012 she directed the event “Bloom Bloom” at Issey Miyake, presented at Isetan’s Shinjuku and Mitsukoshi’s flagship store in Nihonbashi.

So what’s she up to now?

If you go and see the exhibition “Shikiri” (partition) you can discover her colorful products aiming to transform space using a new type of partition. Here are some extracts of her rainbow notes:

Here, the sticks inspired from Mikado and also used to connect space in the Issey Miyake shops:
