Chihiro Tanaka "Light Couture"
This event has ended.
Chihiro Tanaka joined Issey Miyake in 2001 and was involved in design and planning at HaaT. Subsequently, she shifted the focus of her activities to her own lighting brand, exploring new possibilities and techniques that challenged the status quo of handiwork and craftsmanship and the role they play in cultivating unique ideas and fashion. The result of these projects was the enigmatic "Spore" lighting fixture series.
This exhibition, as the title suggests, is Tanaka's first in Japan, introducing audiences to the creative vision brought to life by her "light sculptures." The light that filters through Tanaka's exquisite craftsmanship has been liberated from its materiality, existing in the eye of the observer as a pure luminous and sculptural object. On display are Tanaka's installations as well as the preparatory drawings and studies that constitute the origin of her work.
