Visitors were led along a tunnel to individual booths, all covered in a fluffy cotton and polyester material.
This material will now be reused, heated and compressed to form suitcase wheels.
Designtide Tokyo took place 10 October to 3 November.

Here's some text from the organisers:
The exhibition space was designed with a "cloud" inspiration serving as the basis for subtle partitions that created booths that weren't like traditional booths.
Visitors entered a layered "cloud" tunnel and from there into the TIDE Lounge where materials made by INVISTA were shown.
INVISTA kindly supported the exhibition by providing the material necessary to make the "clouds".
The exhibition design was an antithesis of rigid and invited visitors to meander the site's twisting routes, stumbling upon unexpected discoveries.
