Rakugo / 落語はデザインに通ず

Friday 29 April 2011 Seminar & Workshop

連休明けの5月10日に六本木のアクシス・ギャラリーで開催される落語会『花緑 seasoning:第3回/花』のポスターです。恒例になっている手ぬぐいとともに、佐藤卓さんのデザイン。

安積朋子は2つの演目の間のトークにゲストとして参加します。ほんとうに ''秘すれば花''なのか、それともどんどん咲かせるべきか?「感動」または「微笑み」という言葉で置きかえられる  ''花'' を咲かせるための茎や葉、根や栄養などは、デザインではどう鍛えるべきなのか?伝統と現代のバランスは?などを、花緑師匠に聞いてみようと思っています。

Tomoko Azumi is participating as a guest talk at a Rakugo (lone storyteller, mostly comedy) performance by Karoku Yanagiya, one of the leading young Rakugo players in Japan.  At Axis Gallery, Roppongi, Japan on 10 May.

サローネ時期のミラノで開催された『Charity Box』展にお越し頂いたたくさんの方々、ありがとうございました。オープニング・パーティーの晩にすでにロンドンに戻る機内だったため、せっかくお越し頂いた方々にお会い出来なかったのが残念です。

『Charity Box』のHPにも会場の様子が掲載され、全作品デザイナーの紹介がアップされました。たくさんの義援金が集まったようで、その報告も近々される予定です。

また、会場を訪れてくださったデザインジャーナリストの川上典李子さんが、マダム・フィガロでのコラムにて展示会の様子を紹介されています。『日本のためのイベント・展覧会。ミラノ・デザインウィーク中にも』をぜひご覧ください。

Global PechaKucha day “Inspire Japan” 16 April 2011

Thursday 14 April 2011 Press Latest

Our friends Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of KleinDytham Architects are organising a huge global PechaKucha day on 16th April around the world titled "Inspire Japan".
Tomoko will be sending recorded messages from Milan about the Charity Box project she took part.
Proceeds from Inspire Japan will go directly to Architecture for Humanity (AFH).


The message from Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham below:

On the March 11, Japan suffered what has been described as a 1000 year event. The earthquake and tsunami destroyed 400km of coastline, killing over 10,000 people, leaving 400,000 people homeless, and has triggered a nuclear situation that is still unfolding.

Japan has inspired designers for many generations, it is the reason we travelled to this country 20 years ago, and have since made it our home. Japan is where the "PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds" show-and-tell event format was born, and it has gone on to inspire designers to get together in 400 cities around the world, to share their creativity at more than 1000 events each year.

Japan has inspired us all, now is it our turn to "Inspire Japan."

Please join us on April 16 and be a part of Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan. Let's all come together and show Japan that the creative world is thinking of them, that all is not lost, and that it is possible to stand up and rebuild, even in villages and towns which have been completely destroyed. With creativity and passion, anything is possible.
