Schemata’s Jo Nagasaka Weaves Luminous Installation Using Optic Fibers
To celebrate the launch of Swedish textile company Kinnasand‘s new ‘ZOOM’ collection, Jo Nagasaka of Schemata Architects created a luminous installation presented at the brand’s showroom during the most recent Tokyo Design Week.
Composed of three tube-like forms, each one stands independently and have been crafted using a delicate white fabric from Kinnasand’s latest collection. Strands of optic fiber were woven into the fabric to highlight the transparency of the cylindrical structures to create three ‘loops’. This addition reinforced the overall surface strength, allowing the installation to produce a glowing effect, and stimulate a gentle, bouncing movement which effectively influenced the project’s name – ‘boingboing.’
