Diesel Denim Gallery store installation #5

"Nature Factory" by Makoto Tanijiri

Diesel Denim gallery Aoyama will be presenting a store installation "Nature Factory" by Makoto Tanijiri.

Denim as recognised work clothes formerly had, at times, shown different expressions as fashion items to the people. Equally, a group of plumbing, usually unnoticed, shows completely different expressions with a given name "Nature factory". The complex plumbing, trailing by the wall in all directions will cover all over the space, It is like a tree grown over a long time. An atmosphere like a natural arbor is created in the space covered with artificial plumbing.

New attractive scenery is presented with plumbing and fashion-items to show such primarily functional things are more diverse and also have higher value.

    Suppose Design Office has been an on-going visitor of Dezeen, and I kinda like their work. Will follow.

    I hate that we don’t have a lot of stuff like this in Czech rep. Quite nice work, it really reminds forest and nature feeling.

    it’s interesting!!!!!! i hope to like that one here in the Philippines…. a weird architecture yet with strong sense of creation.

    I find it chaotic. Unsettling. Claustrophobic. Like I’m inside a pile of brush.

    Plumbing everywhere? It’s definetly gonna attract some attention from whoever’s passing by, but instead of nature, I’m thinking what a mess!
