On the 2nd to 13th of April, MONOCIRCUS was a part of an exhibition held
at the CUBE space on the 8th Level of SHIBUYA HIKARIE in Tokyo.
Here is a short report about the event.
In this event, artworks such as paintings, photography,
architectural drawings and 3D printed architectural models were exhibited.
And in the midst of these works, MONOCIRCUS's 3D printed accessories were exhibited
as part of the digital art series.
Specially for this event, we created a new fixture for displaying our work.
Whenever we are creating accessories, display fixtures or just about anything,
we are always inevitably concerned about the visual and artistic aspects of each work,
so somehow most of what we create have an inclination to look like sculptural art objects.
Below are some pictures to share with you about the recent event.
The above pictures were taken when we are setting up for the exhibition.
For this event, we carried and brought in all the components of the fixtures by ourselves
so the fixtures were made in parts for better portability.
From the ceiling hung a simple stainless steel wire display that was assembled by multiple U-shape wires.
This simple hanging system accentuated our 3D printed items that were packed in transparent ziplock packaging.
The samples for visitors to try on, touch and feel were displayed on a table.
This table was created by wrapping a white lycra fabric
over rounded containers placed over a rounded wooden plank that has been assembled in parts.
The intriguing surface, texture and overall supernatural look of this table display
had been very well received during the event.
We are very thankful and honored to be invited to be a part of this wonderful exhibition.
And we are very glad that we received many visitors during this event.
This is a report on 'FASHION MEETS DIGITAL', an exhibition event held at Hankyu Department Store in Osaka recently from February 26 to March 4, 2014, where MONOCIRCUS' items were featured, exhibited and sold.
In the large event hall on the 9th Floor of Hankyu Department Store, MONOCIRCUS had a 12-square-metre space in which we installed a simple wooden wall panel to display our packaged items with a large table on the side with our samples for visitors to touch, hold and try on.
The display panel has been specially fabricated to our design specifications for this event.
A simple video presentation of our items is being played in loop along with presentations of the other exhibits on the large LED screen in this event hall.
Other exhibits included digitally printed fabrics made into dresses, umbrellas, bags and other fashion items, along with digitally printed nail salon, virtual fitting experiential exhibit as well as 3D printing demonstration.
The exhibition was attended by a large number of visitors and attracted quite a bit of attention from the media.
It has been an honor and priviledge that we were given an opportunity like this to feature our work and we are very glad and thankful for this.
This opportunity came upon us when representatives from Hankyu discovered us at the Tokyo Designers Week 2013 in October last year. And this recent event in Osaka actually resulted in a new opportunity that is going to bring MONOCIRCUS to Tokyo this April!
