we+ creates 'breathing' window installation for issey miyake

issey miyake’s spring/summer 2018 window installation by we+ takes its cues from the rich nature of iceland. the tokyo-based design studio has hung 70 textile strips in ginza’s matsuya department store in colors selected from a printed series of the icelandic landscape.

we+ created the installation as an organic space, resembling the breathing of living creatures in the forest. using steam stretch fabric for the textile strips, the studio then connected them with motors to allow them to vertically expand or shrink, either in unison or randomly. a material originally developed by issey miyake, steam stretch fabric weaves creases into a piece of textile with the use of heat reactive thread that shrinks when steam is applied to the garment. the issey miyake window is on show at the matsuya department store in ginza from 11 to 24 april.
