  • Japanese Design

    Japan, a country closed to foreigners for centuries, still has a fascination for the western world, nowhere more so than in the area of design. The intricacies of the kimono and the apparent fragility of paper-walled houses have given way to the innovation of Yohji Yamamoto and the beauty and efficiency of the bullet train. While the fundamental differences between oriental and western design remain, Japanese style is becoming more and more a feature of life in other countries too. In product design, Sony and Honda have taken inventions from the west, such as television and motorcycles, and turned them into the stuff of dreams. Sushi bars and noodle restaurants, with their emphasis on presentation and their earthenware bowls and lacquer trays, can now be found in most major cities. On the high street, stores such as Muji reflect the modern Japanese aesthetic of minimalism and attention to detail. Internationally, projects such as Kansai International Airport are recognized as major architectural achievements. Every page of Japanese Style will feature full-colour images which illustrate the traditions and the diversity of Japanese design. Japanese Style brings together the many strands of modern Japanese design, and the influences from which it springs. This timely collection of the best of modern Japan is an authoritative introduction to the country's contemporary design, and some of the history behind it. From beer commercials to cartoons, the idiosyncratic style of Japan is becoming increasingly familiar to the West, without ever losing its ability to make you look twice.

    This volume explores six key aspects of sports design with essays by prominent designers, writers and commentators. The impact of modern materials, high technology and the design of contemporary sports equipment is examined by designer Richard Seymour. Richard Williams, formerly sports writer on "The Guardian", focuses on how design and technological advances have changed the rules of contemporary sports. The influence of sport on fashion design is explored by Dylan Jones, a writer and editor at the "Sunday Times". Patrick Burgoyne, deputy editor of "Creative Review", writes about the graphics of sport, from replica football shirts to the individually customized graphics of skate and snowboards; from Olympic logos to the Nike swoosh. Peter York, broadcaster, author and journalist, considers sport and advertising, exploring the power of the brand and the efforts of Nike, Reebock and Adidas to inspire an emotional allegiance in their customers. Finally, the architectural writer and critic Martin Pawley examines the design of stadia and shows how, since the Berlin Olympics of 1936, architecture has been a semi-official Olympic sport

  • Tokujin Yoshioka Design

    Tokujin Yoshioka was born in Japan in 1967. He is one of the most important Japanese designers working today, and despite his age he has already worked in collaboration with renowned individuals such as Issey Miyake and Ross Lovegrove. Famed for his technically excellent work and superb appreciation of light as a design material, he uses fibre optics, stunning light installations and reflective-transparent materials in a way that leaves the observer with the impression that the future has arrived. One of his most famous projects so far is the design for the Issey Miyake shop in Tokyo, which was realized with transparent glass and acrylic furniture. His grand-scale style of design has recently brought him recognition on the international stage, and he has won a host of accolades, including the Award of Excellence from the I.D. Annual Design Review for two years running (2000 - 2001). Showing particular interest in new materials and technologies, his work ranges from the amazing Honey Pop chair, which is constructed solely through honeycomb sheets of paper, to a form of architecture based on an appropriating and painstaking act of relocation. His installations, such as that commissioned for the Tokyo Robot Meme exhibition, or the A-POC show at the Vitra Design Museum in Berlin, display an acutely-developed and playful aesthetic with a futuristic touch. Other projects include his feat of arranging specially-designed glass lenses to create the optical illusion called the Roppongi Think Zone - a reflective, cubic building erected on a Tokyo high street - which floats a few inches from the ground. At present he is working on a new furniture collection for Driade. This book will present his entire body of work through beautiful and abstract photographs showing Yoshioka's finished designs, accompanied by sketches, drawings and snapshot images showing the processes at work behind his designs to help to explain his complex technological approach. There will be an introduction by Issey Miyake and a main survey of Yoshioka's work to date by the writer, curator and critic, Nyu Niimi. This will be followed by four chapters, on Light, Transparency, Motion and Material, each beginning with an essay and looking at key Yoshioka designs in more detail. Essays are contributed by four key designers or clients, Ross Lovegrove, Ingo Maurer, Kozo Fujimoto and Paola Antonelli.
