Emmanuelle Moureaux

Daisuke Shima

Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2020 designer of the year, French artist Emmanuelle Moureaux founded her studio in 2003.

Inspired by the layers and colours of Tokyo that built a complex depth and density on the street, and the traditional spatial elements like sliding screens, Emmanuelle Moureaux has created the concept of "shikiri", which means "dividing/creating space with colors."

Using colours as her signature, her representative works include architectural design for Sugamo Shinkin Bank, art installations for UNIQLO and ISSEY MIYAKE, 100 Colours art installation series, and Forest of Numbers at The National Art Center, Tokyo.

Emmanuelle Moureaux has been longlisted in the designer of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
