The David Report friend Tomoki Kusakabe continues his stroll in Tokyo along the different DesignTide exhibitions. Today you will get some fresh pictures directly from the Clear Gallery in Aoyama and the opening exhibition with work by Shiro Kuramata. You will also find some images from the Claesson Koivisto Rune book release (from Birkhäuser) in the gallery space. The report tells that they did not looked jet-lag even if they arrived just a few hours before… Next project is the Without thought Vol.8 at 0 also in Aoyama. This exhibition has some very interesting products and is directed by Naoto Fukasawa. The theme is “wipe” and Naoto collaborated with some young Japanese designers. A COOL EXHIBITION according to Tomoki! Stay tuned for further reports from the DesignTide shows.
