ARCHIVE

During tokyo design week 2015, we used this same concept to design the TSUMIKI pavilion - a temporary structure erected in Tokyo’s midtown park. In addition to the pyramidal installation, individual pieces were arranged in a semi-circle, varying in scale from large to small. Overseas Media described TSUMIKI as the Japanese version of popular Danish building blocks Lego.
