“Bunshi“ installation in Tokyo


Project description

Paris born architect and designer Emmanuelle Moureaux has lived in Tokyo since 1996 and articulates her fascination with the Japanese megalopolis through the concept of “shikiri“, a self-devised and at once dazzling and delicately iridescent method of dividing space through colour.

Her interventions are inspired by urban density, information overload and the creative diversity born out of operating in extremely limited space. Her work ranges from interiors through product design and brand presentations to extensive facade in­stallations.

Last March Moureaux filled a hall in Tokyo’s Fumihiko Maki-designed Spiral Cultural ­Centre (1985) with a scenographical installation. Bunshi, the Japanese word for branching out, delivered a visually exuberant backdrop for the furniture items that had received the Wood Furniture Japan Award 2016.
