Stone Designs have designed and commissioned the Spainalight exhitibion at Tokyo Designer’s Week 2011, held at the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo.

An entirely new concept, an exhibition space where large areas of light are mixed, giving life to this collection. A space that praises Spanish designer’s diversity and in turn, increases their value. An exhibition where the visitor’s interaction will take on new meaning, and who in turn, become the true main characters of this event, allowing you to enjoy and perceive with all your senses, the quality and passion that the Spanish stamp on their products.

The melody of Leo Delibes’ Lakme opera acts as a background to the eternal seduction game in the movie “The Hunger”, where sensuality properly merges with dark atmospheres. The new collection by Sylvio Giardina draws its inspiration from the density of this emotional and narrative context and from the proportions unique to the style codes of the 40’s and 50’s fashion.

Times Eureka Pavilion // Nex Architecture, Marcus Barnett

Designed in collaboration with Landscape Designer Marcus Barnett, the temporary garden and pavilion explore the significance of plants to science and society. Plant species were chosen to reflect their benefits to society including medicinal, commercial and industrial uses found in everyday life. The design brief for the garden was extended to the pavilion by looking closely at the cellular structure of plants and their processes of growth and formation. The final structure was designed using computer algorithms that mimic natural growth and was intended to allow visitors to experience the patterns of biological structure at an unfamiliar scale.

myThread Pavilion // Jenny Sabin

6

Turning performance into structure for the Nike Flyknit Collective, Jenny Sabin is an innovator who works at the intersection of art, architecture, design and science. Sabin often starts from a molecular point-of-view where the singularity of a single unit such as a zip-tie becomes the building block for structures of great complexity. Like Nike Flyknit, which uses simple threads to create a complex formfitting structure on a performance-enhancing shoe, Sabin’s fusions of science, art and technology open the door to new ways of thinking about structure and the relationship of the body to technology.

Cities Like Open-Air Museums // Arne Quinze

6

When cities would be perceived as open-air museums people would start seeing art as a given, as a part of life and as having a positive influence on the quality of life and the general well-being. With every sculpture Arne Quinze builds he seeks confrontation with the viewer in the hope opening up their minds and making them dream again. Often he compares his installations with the effect of what we feel when seeing a great force of nature. Confrontation with unspoilt nature blows you away and leaves you completely dazed – yet in a positive way. In the city confrontation of this proportion is lacking: when looking at his sculptures the artist expects people suddenly feel small, realizing they’re only a minuscule element in the global sphere. People are amazed by the size of the installations, the grandeur takes control over them in contrast with smaller installations.

Tegendraads – Woven Walls Installation // Weis Preijde

5

The installation consists of various hand-woven walls, which together, affects our perspectives in space. A combination of lines, colors, views and passageways gives the observer the idea of walking through a transparent home. Different color combinations exist in the abstracted, patterned spaces, resulting in a flat image which gives the holographic impression of a three dimensional expansion. The screens render the existing space partitionable, articulating new spaces which provide an illusional as well as a physical subdivision of the room.
