wonderwall celebrates nike’s classic air max 30th anniversary with landscape garden

wonderwall / masamichi katayama constructed a dry landscape garden in tokyo’s national museum for the thirty-year anniversary of NIKE’s signature sneaker air max. the classic shoe was integrated into the design through repeated circular patterns which established an ethereal and organic exhibition.

wonderwall in collaboration with hair and make-up artist asami nemoto, used the series of white NIKE sneakers as repeated forms within the display. in contrast, actual airmax sneakers in full color were positioned above to rotate and float on top of the garden. the overall exhibition aimed to capture the theme of ‘air max genealogy’ – a study which looks at the development of the design to its present day form. the organic nature of the design aims to mimic this concept by presenting the shoe within a landscape context, pointing both towards the roots of the design as well as its evolving form.
