‘no sign’ installation

‘no sign’ was the first independent exhibition of the japanese designer, nosigner. the show was held at tokyo’s living design center from april 10-22. the show featured a number of nosigner’s products and a large expansion on his ‘fluoless’ concept made from used fluorescent lights. ‘kyo’ was one of the products on show, combining mirrored glass and a traditional japanese mirror-like finish to create a full length mirror. ‘spring rain’ is a lighting fixture made from biodegradable plastic which is modeled after asian vermicelli noodles. ‘arborism’ is a small table with a branch like form used on its four legs which is made more organic by sitting below ‘pokkari’, a lamp shade designed to imitate clouds. ‘en’ is paper pot stand which uses a honeycomb fold to provide stability.
