ATELIER MUJI GINZA “Research! Notice of holding the “Design that fascinates the process” exhibition

ATELIER MUJI GINZA (Chuo-ku, Tokyo / MUJI Ginza store) will be holding "Research! Design that fascinates the process" at ATELIER MUJI GINZA Gallery 1 and 2 from July 1st (Friday) to August 28th (Sunday), 2022. We will hold an exhibition.

The other things that surround our lives.
While looking at the table where the items are lined up, we select the items we like, the beautiful items, the convenient items, etc. from the user's point of view and incorporate them into our daily lives.
But what if each one begins to talk about the research and process behind it? What do we notice and how will our lives change?

Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE), located in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, is a design education institution known for its unique programs that foster modern concepts and ways of thinking that overturn the traditional concept of "design". We are attracting attention by sending out creators who will bring about major changes in the flow of manufacturing so far. So what exactly is that new "design"?

In this exhibition, Christine Mendelzma, who is known as a pioneering artist who takes the form of research, and young artists who are now attracting international attention, Simon Bagen Botero, Satomi Kinoshima + Porin Agustoni, and 3 from DAE. Visualize the horizon of the new design through the works of the group.

What they all have in common is the fundamental question of creating more in the modern era, thorough research, and the method of making the process itself into a work.
The works that fascinate us through the research and process of each of the three groups direct our curiosity to the things behind "things", and the scenery and sensibilities of everyday things that we have seen as simple "users". I think it has the power to completely change the consciousness of beauty.
