Design by Tokujin Yoshioka for Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum

Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum has published their very first symbol mark and logo designed by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka.

The cubic architecture of the current museum building was designed by Kunio Maekawa in 1975. Tokujin has designed the symbol mark based on the concept of cube, which connotes “the origin of creation.” The color is born from the harmonious combination of the reddish-brown color of the museum exterior, and red, which is a hint of Japanese inspiration.

Tokujin made two versions of the symbol mark; the cubic solid version, and the liner design with the feel of transparency.

This design is simple, yet has a strong, clear identity. It is the image of the unification of the history and the future of the museum, says Tokujin Yoskioka.
