This week, I showed my new transformable chair “share chair” at Zero Exhibition in Tokyo Designer’s Week. Thank your comming to my demonstration space. When you use the chair, you share your place and feeling with your lovely people by the impressive interaction. That’s my concept. And The new model have light up capable function. You can put a light, Video projector and home planetarium inside the chair to project the light to the cover. you can sit down at the light. In the picture, I put Video projector with fisheye lenz into the chair to project video images from the inside of the chair. And I used PS3 to […]

I started to make this year’s my chair. And I tryed to design have an elegant round shaped one. But the elegance was incompatible with my gimmick. At last, it became a flop… I need my elegance :-P
This image was rendered as the final plan. I printed out 1/1 scale draft by the 3DCG data. Engineer used the draft as a guide for bending stainless steel pipes. The animation for explanation about the transformming. I showed the movie at Tokyo Designer’ s Week exhibition ( used PSP ). And I made such as 5 colours name cards at last. Last one is not for me but for the factory made the chair. Many peoples took it and got access the blog. thanks! Some children took all of the colour’s :-)

One month ago, I tried to find out a factory to order my designed chair (again). and at last, Only one factory accepted. Their name is TOKYUSHU GIKEN at Saitama near Tokyo. I haven’t known that realize my chair was possible or not. For example, normaly simple pipe chair only have 6 or 8 curves, but my chair have 408 small curves in one chair. But they answered me possibile to build it and noticed some problems. I tried to solve the problems, drafted the design again and printed out it by real size to “A0” size big paper for them ( at Kinko’s ). Basically it is very simple […]
I should inform I passed a review to exhibit my chair at Tokyo Designers Week’06 Pro Exhibition. Designer’s Association sended me the result before the deadline to pay the Without Predictable Entory fee for the examination. Thank if you minded about my trouble with Designer’s Association’s Issue. OK, I paid $250 (30,000, yen) for an participation fee to exhibition. But they demand not only the entory fee but to become their member fee was never wrote any of their Documentation. I paid more $250 ! :-( Well, $500 is not so expencive for such as Exhibition. But I think they should present all of the cost and the risk in […]

Design Association said that( in their contract and guidance web page, ) they would screen applicants and send their judgement to us, at mid of August, and AFTER THAT they would charge 31,500,-yen for the showing fee to the candidate.

But I can’t, they woldn’t return the Showing fee with no showing. WHY!? I appeal them to keep their contract. Now, […]
