Japanese designer Nendo, has set up his show at one of Brera’s most magical spaces, the Chiostri di San Simpliciano, staging a comic story starring chairs.
With this exhibition, Nendo abstracts archetypes of manga comics. the chairs are happy, distressed, embarrassed, surprised; they leap and bound, zoom past, or slowly slink away. each chair has its own personality, allowing it to stand on its own or, when placed next to the others, to become part of a collective narrative.
The Japanese paper distributor TAKEO Co, Ltd, under the curatorship of Kenya Hara invited 15 creators including architects, illustrators, graphic designers and art directors to explore the material paper for their Annual paper show.
After two years of planning, and with art direction by Kenya Hara, the 47th edition focuses on the delicacy, resilience and important value of paper, with the intention to rethink and further broaden the possibilities for fine paper.
