Toge in Tokyo, Japan by Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

 
March 9th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

Toge (Japanese for thorn) is a modular product. Each “thorn” gives the viewer the impression of a sharp and stiff object, but these modules can in fact be freely combined to create a soft, pliable and standalone space. At DESIGNTIDE TOKYO 2011, Emmanuelle arranged five hundred of these Toge modules in 15 different colors to form a wedding dress. This conceptual piece was an exercise in contradictory impressions and sensations – solid and stiff but soft and pliable, menacing yet gentle.
