this year’s ICFF designboom mart 2012 features a special lighting installation created by japanese-born brooklyn-based designer takeshi miyakawa.
composed of three undulating panels; two measuring 13′ long; one measuring 10.5′ long, all at a height of 3′, the sculptural work is suspended
above the exhibition space. the hanging curtains of light draw their references from the aurora borealis and display designboom’s typographic logo,
acting as a beacon amidst the expansive fair venue, visually defining the mart from the rest of the exhibitors.

UPDATE – 5/21/12: for ‘I (heart) new york’, a separate  lighting installation during NY design week, takeshi miyakawa

has been arrested and is being detained on felony charges of reckless endangerment and the placing of false bombs.

read more and sign the petition to free miyakawa and protect the rights of artists.

UPDATE (5/23/12): after his attorney filed a writ of habeus corpus, the court held a second hearing for takeshi miyakawa
on may 23rd,
where a new judge released him without bail. the artist’s court date
against his initial charges is scheduled
for june 21st, 2012.
