MSCTY_Studio w/ Toshiki Hirano + Clare Farrow REINVENTING TEXTURE
What is the sound of Tokyo? What does London feel like?
At a time when physical travel is restricted, the experimental immersive Pavilion “Reinventing Texture” links the two cities through a sensory stimulation of texture without touch.
Toshiki Hirano's multi-layered Washi paper work evokes the spirit of everyday life, and includes MSCTY_Studio's recordings of Tokyo streets, household objects, vending machines, toilets, and more.
Watch an exclusive video with Toshiki Hirano, explaining the process behind his design for London Design Biennale 2021's Japan Pavilion.
