2D/3D chairs for Issey Miyake by Yoichi Yamamoto Architects, Tokyo

July 15th, 2011 by retail design blog

Japanese firm Yoichi Yamamoto Architects has completed ‘2D/3D chairs’ for tokyo fashion labels Issey Miyake store. Featuring a series of traditional dining chairs, the installation transforms from a two dimensional graphic into a tangible piece. The perspective is manipulated creating a unique appearance from different vantage points for onlookers. Graphics of legs in varying perspectives are printed onto a horizontal plane while the chair backs rest upon the surface.

The seat backs maintain a seamless transition from the graphics by utilizing assorted sizes, heights and placed at diverse angles. Clothing items are then displayed upon the installation in a casual manner appearing as though someone tossed it onto their household furniture. Currently a collection of vibrant hats designed by akio hirata are presented to shoppers by resting upon the electric blue backs.
